Brooklyn Park police have located the missing 3-year-old girl who authorities say was abducted by her father last May.

The child was turned over to detectives Thursday evening and appears to be healthy and unharmed. The break came just 24 hours after police asked for the public's help finding the girl.

Police arrested the father, identified as Trimell Chamberlain, on Monday after executing a search warrant on a Brooklyn Park address associated with him. Authorities say that Chamberlain, who had been determined to be unfit to care for children, refused to return his daughter to relatives or say where the child was located.

A female friend later returned Try'Reshia Chamberlain to police.

Chamberlain, 31, faces two felony counts of depriving parental rights and concealing a minor. He remains jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail.
