21-year-old Abigail Hanna had recently been fired from her babysitting job in Hamilton, Massachusetts.
Sheâ€™d been hired to watch two-year-old Lyndon Albers up until that time.
The last time the little girlâ€™s parents had seen her, it was around 3 a.m. on November 20th. They reported her missing at 7 a.m.
But just as an Amber Alert was about to be issued about three hours after sheâ€™d been reported missing, Tom and Marge Crosby, a couple driving down the road, saw her at around 10 a.m.
Tom Crosby was behind the wheel, about eight miles from where sheâ€™d gone missing, and saw the child. He says it was a ‘visionâ€™ that compelled him to turn his car around and verify what heâ€™d just seen.
â€œI donâ€™t want to say a vision but thatâ€™s what it was â€” a vision,â€ he told a local paper. â€œI drove by and then quickly it flashed through my head. I said â€˜Was that a baby or was it a doll?â€™â€
When they got to her again, she was shivering, sitting naked in a pile of leaves with a bruise on her head, which had been shaved, and she had multiple cigarette burns on her body.
She was taken to a hospital, where she is recovering and is said to be in fair condition.
Abigail Hanna was arrested and charged with kidnapping, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, assault and battery on a child, and breaking and entering.
Sheâ€™s being held without bail.
