The third person who was taken into custody was let go without charges.

Both women are related to the missing 16 month old, the Sheriff's office said.

Original story: A missing 16-month-old child was found soon after authorities posted on social media they were looking for her.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s office posted information about a missing girl on Facebook Saturday afternoon. They said Azealiea Campbell had been taken from her home by a family member at about 1 p.m.

That family member, Lydia Campbell, 26, was among three people arrested in connection with the child going missing. The sheriff's office tells us Lydia is Azealiea's biological mother but does not have legal custody.

Azealiea was found and returned home safe at approximately 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff's office also took two others into custody, Madelyn Campbell and another unidentified suspect. Both Madelyn and Lydia are facing second-degree kidnapping charges.
