This morning we noted that two little girls had gone missing after her mother left them in the care of babysitter that she didn't know all that well. The good news is that little girls who were reportedly missing for three days were found safe and sound.In fact, they were in the care of the woman they were last seen with, according to police in Long Beach. The woman named CC accused of abducting the kids called up police once she heard the news that police were looking for her. She let them know she was in Lynwood and she had the girls.

Now cops have turned their attention to the mother of the two girls Diondria Cherie Davis, 33. She has been arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment. It's not clear what exactly happened and how CC, a woman she barely knew, ended up with the kids.

Davis had recently moved down from Sacramento and was staying in a motel. She told police that a man she knew who lived in the motel told her that CC would watch her children for her. One suspicious fact that the Daily News reported is that Davis didn't alert authorities that her daughters had gone missing (or maybe it's "missing"?) until two days after the fact.
