Detroit  The 4-month-old girl who was forcibly taken from her mother at a Detroit home on Christmas Eve has been returned safe, police said Friday.

Detroit Police Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood, a spokeswoman for the department, said A'miyah Jones was returned to her mother Thursday night. She also said the girl was in good condition.

Earlier Friday, Kirkwood said police had taken her uncle — her father's twin brother—  into custody.

He was with the baby's father, JaQuan Jones, 24, who allegedly used a gun to remove A'miyah from her mother's care, officials said Friday.

Investigators continue to search for Jones, Kirkwood said.

He then produced a handgun, took the baby from her mother and left in an unknown direction, police said. 

Jones is believed to be driving a blue Chrysler 200.
