The 4-year-old son of an Atlanta woman was returned to his mother on Thursday, a week after her ex-girlfriend picked him up at a daycare center and police said she was a suspect in his disappearance.

Atlanta police issued a missing child alert on Wednesday and asked for the public's help in finding Kentavious Williams. His mother's ex-girlfriend, Kenyatta Allen, picked up the child from a daycare in southeast Atlanta on Feb. 28. Allen regularly kept the child and was expected to return him to his mother, Kenyatta Williams, on Sunday. That didn't happen, according to an Atlanta police incident report.

Ms. Williams stated that Ms. Allen picked her child up from the school on that Friday at around 1400 hours, and that was the last time she saw her child.

Williams told police that she texted her former girlfriend on Sunday, but that Allen stopped responding and the child did not attend school this week.

Ms. Williams stated that Ms. Allen never got back with her on when to pick up her child. Ms. Williams stated that she continued to call and text Ms. Allen about getting her child back and Ms. Allen would never respond back. Ms. Williams contacted the daycare center to see if her child was in school on Monday, Tuesday, and today, and they said that her child was never at the daycare center.

On Wednesday, Williams reported the missing child and told police that she believed Allen would not harm her child, but wouldn't return him.

Ms. Williams stated that she believes that Ms. Allen will not harm her child and that there has been no history of abuse towards the child. Ms. Williams stated that Ms. Allen has in the past taken care of her child.

On Thursday morning, the child was returned to Williams unharmed, according to Atlanta police spokesperson Sgt. Greg Lyon. Charges are pending in the case, but no one has been arrested yet, he said.
