SAN ANTONIO – A toddler who was taken by her grandmother in San Antonio has been found safe, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

Aurora Lee Lopez, 2, disappeared early Friday after her grandmother Sherry Lee McGill, 49, abducted her, according to BCSO.

Both Lopez and McGill were found around 8:25 a.m. when troopers with the Department of Public Safety spotted her 2012 Honda Accord on Interstate 35 in McClennon County.

Troopers stopped the vehicle and took Lopez into custody. BCSO and DPS are working to reunite the child with family members.

BCSO previously stated they believed McGill was traveling to Oklahoma.

Law enforcement officials said Lopez was in “grave or immediate danger.”

No other details, including possible charges or a motive, have been released at this time.
