UPDATE: Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said that Nailla was found by a man walking to work. Nailla was crying, shivering and hiding under some playground equipment. She was wearing only a t-shirt. It also looked as though she had cuts on her lip. She was taking to the hospital. The person that took Nailla is still at large.
Nailla Robinson, was in her classroom at the Bryant Elementary School on 60th Street and Cedar Avenue in Cobbs Creek on Monday morning when a woman dressed in what the Amber Alert referred to as black Muslim-style clothing, came into the classroom and said she was Nailla's mother and was taking her out to breakfast. Nailla has been missing since.
Latifah Abdul-Rashid, Nailla's mother said she dropped her daughter off at school at 8:45 in the morning along with her son.
"My daycare called me,” said Abdul-Rashid. “They pick my child up, her and my son, and walk them to the daycare from the school around 3 o’clock. They asked me if Nailla had an early dismissal today. And, of course I said, ‘no, she didn’t.’ She asked me about a woman named Tiffany and I immediately thought about my brother’s friend. I called her and she was like, ‘no, I’m in school. I didn’t take Nailla.’”
School officials told Abdul-Rashid that a woman who called herself "Tiffany" signed Nailla out of the office and told them she needed to take her daughter to breakfast.
“In the surveillance camera that the school has that I watched, she’s dressed in traditional over-garment and Niqab,” said Abdul-Rashid. “She has her face covered and only her eyes showing. She’s wearing gloves. She’s wearing all black. She has something white on her arm and she has a long black umbrella. The surveillance camera shows them walking through the hallway to get to the door. The next camera picks up and she’s putting her umbrella up. Then they disappear,” Abdul-Rashid told NBC 10.
"We're looking for my child," Abdul-Rashid told Action News outside the school. "Please, please take my baby anywhere that she can be picked up." "I don’t know what else to say... don’t hurt my baby."
The person was caught on surveillance video leaving the school with Nailla around 8:50 a.m. and the authorities believe the woman may be around 8-months pregnant.
The Philadelphia School District told NBC 10 that "A woman showed up at the school and was allowed to visit the child in the classroom, which is against protocol. "
The police issued an Amber Alert and are gathering information and trying to determine who would have taken Nailla.
