By  | 

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Federal officials say a missing West Virginia girl was found in Mexico and her mother is facing charges.

The U.S. Marshals Service on Wednesday announced it located the 6-year-old and her mother at a hotel in Mexico City with the help of Mexican authorities Tuesday.

The girl was reported missing on July 20 after her mother did not return her to her custodial parent after a scheduled visitation. Days later, an emergency protective order and a warrant were filed against the mother, charging her with concealment of a child.

Authorities say the girl is in good condition and is being returned to her father in the U.S. The mother has not hired a lawyer.
