The Broward County Sheriff's Office says 2-month-old Taraji Kemp, who was allegedly kidnapped from her home near Fort Lauderdale, has been found safe in Orlando Saturday evening.

Deputies say they also have a woman they called a "person of interest" in the armed kidnapping Friday night. 24-year-old Stephanie Augustin was located near Fort Pierce and is talking with detectives in connection with the incident.

Just after 11 p.m. deputies responded to a report of a home invasion and kidnapping at a home near Fort Lauderdale.

"The parents of a two-month-old girl reported that an armed intruder came in and took their daughter," says Joy Oglesby of the Broward County Sheriff's Office. "We immediately set up a perimeter and we got K-9 our here. K-9 was not able to get any results."

A statewide Amber Alert was issued.

It is unknown at this time the relationship between Augustin and Taraji Kemp
