Elk Grove Police are asking for the public's help in finding a 3-year-old girl.

Elk Grove police say a woman and her 3-year-old child who she abducted from school on Thursday have both been found safe in Sacramento Friday.

The police department was originally notified of the child abduction at 6:39 p.m. Thursday. School staff said the mother, Panpan Chen, was also with an older, unknown Asian female when she picked up her daughter, Kira Chen.
