Jaliyah Williams was reunited with her sister and her father this week after was reported missing on Jan. 5.
According to the report, Jaliyah’s father dropped her off at her bus stop on East 25th Street and Lake Shore Drive but she did not show up to her school.
Jaliyah’s sister told reporters that the family believed Jaliyah’s mother, who recently lost custody of her, could have been behind the disappearance.
“My dad had a custody battle with her mom and she lost custody. My sister has been in the mom’s care. I think that, possibly, the mom could have taken her. Where? I don’t know,” Jaquita Williams said.
While it was not confirmed whether or not the child’s mother Tyshon Glee, was involved, authorities did take her into custody on Wednesday.
