NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A 4-year-old girl reported missing at a Manhattan subway station Wednesday morning has been found, police say.

The girl has been identified as Caitlyn Daniels.

Police say the child was at daycare and never at the subway station.

According to officials, the mother forgot she took her to daycare and reported her missing.

Her mother had walked up to cops at approximately 8:30 a.m. and told them her daughter disappeared in the Lexington Avenue/59th Street station, prompting a massive search for the child.

Police found her 12-year-old brother home alone according to a report from NBC 4.

The mother was taken to a local hospital for psychological and drug testing, police say.

This is a developing story.
