Wichita Police have announced the arrest of 34 year-old Ronetta Clement in connection with the missing child report filed for 2 year-old Anyla James.

Captain Brent Allred said the child was found safe with her grandmother.

Allred said Clement, the girls mother, was interviewed a second time for more information in the case and determined some of the details she gave didn't

match previous statements. 

The grandmother contacted police, letting them know she had the girl and that she was safe. The father was hesitant to call police because he has warrants.

Clements is expected to be charged with making a false missing child report with the possibility of endangerment, which is a felony. 

Allred said the man needs to take care of his warrants, but their first concern was the safety of the child.

The girl is staying with her grandmother.
