KEENE – A missing Keene woman and her toddler were found safe in Jacksonville, Fla., Tuesday.
Nicole Reynolds, 33, and her daughter, Gianna Geraghty, 2, had not been seen or heard from since Feb. 5.
Keene Police Sgt. Jason Short said police believe Reynolds took her daughter because she was upset because the 2-year-old's paternal grandparents were recently given custody of the child.
Reynolds then failed to appear in family court Thursday for a scheduled hearing.
Gianna's father, Seth Geraghty, was not missing and was still in Keene, Short said Monday.
On Tuesday police announced that the Jacksonville, Fla., Police Department had located both Gianna and her mother.
"Gianna will be placed in the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Family until the paternal grandparents can arrange to take custody of her. Nicole is facing unrelated non-felony charges in Florida," Keene police said.
Keene police also have a felony warrant for Reynolds for Interference with custody under New Hampshire state law.
