NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A 4-year-old girl who was reported missing from a Manhattan subway station was found safe at her daycare following an hourslong search.

A mother reported her child missing, saying she thought she had become separated from her 4-year-old daughter at the East 59th Street and Lexington Avenue subway station on the Upper East Side around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Police immediately started a search for Caitlyn Brown, using the Bloomingdale's entrance as their command post.

They searched the subway, questioned the mother and even went to her East Harlem apartment where they found her 12-year-old son, who was home from school because of the Yom Kippur holiday.

But still there was no sign of Caitlyn.

So police checked her daycare and there she was — safe and sound.

The mother had apparently forgotten she dropped the child at daycare on her way to work.

No charges have been filed but police say the mother is being evaluated.
