Detroit Police say that a 2-year-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert has been found safe, and the suspect is in custody.

The alert was issued after Sondra Renee was taken from a relative’s house.

Police said that Grady Barrett, 42, went to the child’s aunt’s house at around 2:30 a.m., produced a weapon and took the girl.

The aunt was babysitting for the child's mother.

Barrett is the boyfriend of the victim’s mother, but not the biological parent.

Detroit Police say that Barrett is in custody after crashing his pickup while fleeing from police.

Police spotted the pickup several hours later on Interstate 75 near the Ohio state line. The driver sped away and led officers on a nearly hour-long chase back into Detroit.
The suspect suffered minor injuries after crashing into at least one other vehicle. A woman inside the pickup also was arrested.
