The child was found at about 3 p.m. on Detroit's west side.

Investigators said Shonell's father was away from the home Thursday night when Lucia arrived and requested to use the restroom. The father's 17-year-old son, who was home at the time with Shonell,  allegedly allowed Lucia to enter.

Authorities said the son went upstairs and when he came down Shonell and Lucia were gone. 

Lucia is in good physical condition but suffers from bi-polar schizophrenia and takes medication.  She was taken into custody.
