TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Topeka police say a 2-year-old girl who had been missing for more than 24 hours has been found safe.

However, police are still looking for the man who took the girl during a domestic disturbance on Saturday in southwest Topeka.

Details of how and where the girl was found Sunday have not been released.

Officers were called to the home Saturday afternoon, where a woman said her boyfriend was inside with their nearly 2-year-old daughter.

After a nearly four-hour standoff, police entered the home and found no one inside.
