University of Kentucky police have found a toddler they say was reported missing in Los Angeles more than two months ago.

Officers saw a woman pushing a stroller on campus Thursday with a little girl who wasn't dressed properly for the cold weather. Upon further investigation they learned that the 17-month-old child, Alouette Day-Moreno-Baltierra, had been reported missing in California on Oct. 15.

Police have charged the woman, Maria Baltierra-Dejesus, of New York, with endangering the welfare of a minor and custodial interference.

UK Police Chief Joe Monroe says Baltierra-Dejesus says she is the child's grandmother, but that has not been confirmed. The girl is in the care of Child Protective Services. Monroe says it is possible Baltierra-Dejesus wanted to leave the country with the girl.
