The 7-month-old baby, said to have been abducted from her home in Merrillville, Indiana, was dropped off at a police station in Illinois Monday.

Police in Indiana and Illinois issued Amber Alerts for Xeniyah Sanders Monday afternoon after the child was taken and thought to be somewhere in Illinois. A man allegedly climbed through the window of her home and took her without permission. Police haven't said if the suspect knew the child or if he is in custody.

Police earlier said that Sanders was believed to be with 35-year-old Leandre Nutull.
