Young girl who vanished two years ago has been found alive and well in Mexico

Young girl who vanished two years ago has been found alive and well in Mexico

Majesty Williams was four years old when she disappeared without a trace on 1 April 2021.

A six-year-old girl has been reunited with her father more than two years after she was allegedly abducted and taken to Mexico.

On 1 April 2021, when Majesty Williams was just four years old, her mother, Andrea McCord, allegedly took her from her father's house in Smyrna, Georgia.

In a press release shared on social media, the Smyrna Police Department and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children said Majesty has finally been reunited with her dad, James Williams.

“The Smyrna Police Department is honored to have partnered with NCMEC in the search for Majesty. The Smyrna Police Department used several resources to gain information in locating Majesty, but once we connected with NCMEC our resources grew exponentially,” said Lieutenant Meredith Holt, Public Information Officer at Smyrna Police Department.

“Our detective team worked diligently and strategically to continue the search and keep Majesty at the forefront of everyone’s mind.

"We are truly grateful for our partnership with NCMEC and proud of our own detectives for not giving up. We wish Majesty and her father the best as they move forward together.”

On the day of the disappearance, 34-year-old McCord was visiting Majesty at her father's home.

Williams was working in the yard when he realised McCord and their daughter were no longer there.

He later received a text message from McCord saying his car was at a nearby grocery store and the keys were under the seat.

He then reported his daughter missing to Smyrna Police.

A break in the case finally came on Saturday (July 15) when McCord and her boyfriend, Custodio Guerra, were located in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

They were arrested on charges of Interstate Interference with Child Custody and have been extradited to the United States to face charges.

The next day, Williams and his daughter were reunited at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.

"I am incredibly grateful and overjoyed to be reunited with my daughter. I want to thank the Smyrna Police Department, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and the U.S. Marshals for everything they did to find Majesty," Williams said in a statement released through the National Centre for Missing & Exploited Children.

"Words cannot express how happy I am to have my daughter back home.

"Majesty is doing well, and I kindly ask the media for privacy at this time."
