She was just 7 months old when she was taken by her father who did not have custody.
The abduction prompted an Amber Alert.
During a news conference soon after the incident, officials said an officer entered the home where Emma Grace was and “immediately grabbed her up and shielded her with great care.”
Police in Danville, Virginia, say Carl Ray Kennedy abducted his daughter at knifepoint from the girl’s mother at a gas station
Kennedy, 52, pleaded guilty to several charges earlier this year. He was sentenced to six years in prison.
