CLINTON, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say a man accused of abducting his 3-year-old daughter is in custody and the girl is safe.

Cpl. Deborah Flory says George Henry Washington took off with his daughter, Laniya Shanyce Brame, after her mother brought the girl to meet him in a Clinton park on Sunday afternoon. Flory says an Amber Alert was issued because Washington made a threat against the child’s life.

When Washington spotted the Amber Alert on Sunday evening, Flory says he left the girl with a relative. He was taken into custody before he could leave the neighborhood.

Flory says police have confirmed that the girl is safe. She says Washington is the girl’s father but authorities do not believe he had custodial rights.

    A picture or at least the race of the child and suspect would be helpful in identifying them if they don;t happen to be in the vehicle when seen. Can someone from WJZ get that info?

    I agree with the previous comment. Knowing the race of the child and suspect would definitely be helpful!!! My prayers go out to the family of the missing child. No one should ever have to endure this misery!

    How can it be his daughter, but yet he’s charged with abducting her… You people force this kind of action onto fathers, don’t you think!!! You just automatically take the woman’s side no matter what the situation is… Did he hurt his kid, no, so what are his bogus charges!!!!

      “Flory says an Amber Alert was issued because Washington made a threat against the child’s life.”—- There you go.

    If he is not the custodial parent and he takes the child without consent or outside of the Court Order, he broke the law and deserves to be charged. Custody and Court Orders exist for a reason.
