Abducted Girl Found Unharmed in L.A.

At the end of August, a toddler was abducted by her father and driven out of Los Angeles, according to the Desert Sun. The two-year-old girl, Lanees Issa, was found with Louai Nayel Issa late on a Wednesday night in the Westlake neighborhood. The girl’s father was with Louai during a supervised visit when he pointed a gun at a Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services worker and took her. There was a getaway vehicle waiting outside with a friend behind the wheel. The toddler’s mother may also have know about this planned abduction, and police plan to question her. The girl was unharmed when officers arrived. She was in the custody of Children and Family Services because her parents have a history of drug abuse.
