Philadelphia (CNN) - A 5-year-old girl abducted Monday from a West Philadelphia elementary school was found early Tuesday barely dressed and crying under a slide at a playground, police said.
A pedestrian walking by the park around 4:40 a.m. heard the child crying.
"When I got closer, it sounded clear: 'Help, help,'" the Good Samaritan, Nelson Myers, said at a news conference Tuesday.
"When I saw her under the slide I was shocked," he said. "She was there by herself and only had a shirt on."
"Five-year-olds don't escape. Someone put her at that playground," said Capt. John Darby, commanding officer of Special Victims.
The girl told Myers she "was stolen," Darby said.
The girl was taken by an unidentified woman wearing Muslim-style head garb with her face covered, authorities said.
