A missing two-year-old Osceola County girl is back safe at home with her mother after she was violently abducted.

Officials say a man believed to be her father is now behind bars. They say 28-year-old Michael James took Sierra Turner-James yesterday morning by breaking into an apartment through a kitchen window.

The girl was found unharmed in Eatonville, about 30 miles north of her home. An Amber Alert had been issued a few hours earlier.

James was booked into Orange County Jail in Orlando. Officials say he could face multiple charges including kidnapping and armed occupied burglary.

In May James allegedly took Sierra and her infant sister, Samaya Turner-James. Samaya is also believed to be his daughter.

The three were found in Orange County hours later.
