PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. Both Pelham and Pelham Manor police dealt with a case of a missing girl Tuesday night.
The girl argued with her babysitter about not wanting to go to her dance class and became emotional, according to the report from the Pelham Manor Police Department. The babysitter then called the mother, who insisted that her daughter go to the class.
The babysitter took the girl out of bed. The daughter resisted but eventually complied until they arrived at the class on Fifth Avenue. The girl then ran away and the babysitter called 911.
A description was put over the air and an officer from the Pelham Police Department, who was travelling westbound on Pelhamwood Avenue toward the Fifth Avenue intersection, saw the girl walking southbound on Fifth Avenue at First Street, according to the report from the Pelham Police Department.
The Pelham Police Department brought the girl to police headquarters in Pelham Manor and notified the girl's mother. She told Pelham Manor police that she instructed the babysitter to bring the girl to the dance class and that her daughter has had emotional outbursts in the past.
Police spoke to the child, who said she had calmed down and wanted to go home with her mother. The two returned home without incident.
