A missing girl who disappeared from her father’s home two years ago was found alive and safe in Mexico.
Majesty Williams, 6, was just four years old when she vanished from his father’s home in Smyrna, Georgia, on April 1, 2021.
Following an extensive search and investigation, the child was found living with her mother, Andrea McCord, in Mexico. It has since been revealed that the mother kidnapped the girl from her father’s home before fleeing the country.
Majesty was now flown from Mexico to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta where she was reunited with her father, James Williams.
Meanwhile, the police arrested McCord and her new partner, Custodio Guerra, who face charges of interference with child custody and kidnapping.
The pair have allegedly already been extradited to the United States to answer for their crimes.
“I am incredibly grateful and overjoyed to be reunited with my daughter,” Mr. Williams said of the breakthrough in his daughter’s case.
“Words cannot express how happy I am to have my daughter back home. Majesty is doing well, and I kindly ask the media for privacy at this time.”
Confirming the good news was also Smyrna Police Department who worked tirelessly for two years to locate the missing child and reunite the girl with her father.
“The Smyrna Police Department is honored to have partnered with NCMEC in the search for Majesty. The Smyrna Police Department used several resources to gain information in locating Majesty, but once we connected with NCMEC our resources grew exponentially,” Lieutenant Meredith Holt said.
“Our detective team worked diligently and strategically to continue the search and keep Majesty at the forefront of everyone’s mind.
“We are truly grateful for our partnership with NCMEC and proud of our own detectives for not giving up. We wish Majesty and her father the best as they move forward together.”
Speaking out was also the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children whose director of communications Angeline Hartmann admitted missing child cases may face obstacles in getting media attention when custody situations are involved.
“We shared home videos of Majesty and that helped viewers connect with this sweet child. People across the country wanted to help her Dad. We’re thrilled that Majesty is now back home safe,” she said.
