“They have been very distraught,” said neighbor Shatonya Rollison about the girl’s parents. “They love their children. They’re very good people. They’ve been a joy to even be neighbors with. I mean, no one deserves this, especially not my neighbors.”

Officials in Terrell found the 38-year-old babysitter and the child at a motel. Garcia is now behind bars and charged with kidnapping. Her bond has been set at $50,000.
