February 15, 2011

Indianapolis police say a baby girl taken from a day-care center at gunpoint by her mother on Monday has been found in good condition and placed with Child Protective Services. Shaniya Harden, 10 months old, was found in an apartment near 42nd Street and Post Road on the city’s east side. An Amber Alert had been issued after her mother, Shyane Harden, 19, went to Little Dreamers Day Care at 3905 Sadlier Drive and forcefully took the girl even though she no longer has custody of the child. The mother was arrested and faces charges of criminal confinement, neglect of a dependent, and violation of a court order.
