GLADSTONE, Mo. — A 5-year-old suburban Kansas City girl was found safe with family members after being taken from her father’s house Sunday night.

Gladstone police declined to say which family member had Lili Justine High when she was found around 2:15 p.m. Monday.

Lili had been the focus of an Amber Alert that was issued after police say a friend of her mother’s took the girl from her father’s home after he briefly left the room Sunday night.

The woman who is believed to have taken the girl, Tammi J. Lampkins — also known as Tammi J. Kelly — was taken into custody Monday morning after police say she saw herself on a television news broadcast and turned herself in.
