Missing 3-year-old returned to family following Amber Alert

Missing girl returned to family

*UPDATE* 10/4 11p - Lenore Wilson has been safely returned to the Augusta Police Department, and went home with family members.

She was brought by one man who carried her in - he was NOT China or Dollar, the two people who police believed Lenore was with.

Lenore's grandmother and aunt were in the Augusta Police Department when the man walked in with Lenore.

All the child has told them is that she went on a long ride, jumped on a bed, took a bath, played a band-aid game, and got a "boo boo" on her head.

Police say that they have identified that man who brought her into the department, but they will not release his name until Wednesday.

They are still piecing everything together and figuring out any formal charges.

"I want to thank everybody, too," said Lenore's grandmother Marjorie Lea. "People who didn't even know her...God is good. That's all I can say."

*UPDATE* 10/4 5:30p – Missing 3-year-old Lenore Wilson has been found safe. More details to follow.

Wilson was brought to the Augusta Police Department. It was not immediately clear how she got there.

Augusta PD said its investigation will continue.

The department thanked everyone who assisted and said the help from the public was "overwhelming."
