PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — A 5-year-old girl was found Monday evening in a stolen vehicle that was left abandoned on Mobile Highway, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to Oakland Drive Monday afternoon for a report of a stolen car with Isobel Battese inside.
According to ECSO, she was believed to be with Miracle Armstrong, 23, in a gold 2005 Jeep Liberty with a Florida license plate number CX1287.
Earlier Monday, the sheriff’s office put out an alert that said Armstrong may have been traveling to Atlanta, Georgia, and the suspect may be armed.
Within about an hour, a deputy found the Jeep outside Woodsies Hilltop Bar on Mobile Highway which is about a half a mile away from where the Jeep was taken. Sheriff Chip Simmons drove the girl down the street to be reunited with her family.
Deputies are still searching for Armstrong. Anyone who has information on her whereabouts should call 911.
