Queens girl, 4, taken by father found safe in Memphis
A 4-year-old girl who was allegedly snatched by her father in Queens on Friday was found in Memphis on Sunday, police said.
Giovanna Beck was found in good condition, cops said. Her father, Michael Beck, was arrested and is awaiting extradition to New York.
Giovanna was with her mother and Beck at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Jackson Heights at about 2 p.m. on Friday when Beck asked Giovanna’s mother if he could take the girl to his car to give her a present.
Beck then took the child and left the location in a white Chevy HHR car being driven by a woman with long hair and glasses, police said.
Charges against Beck are pending. The driver of the vehicle is not in custody and police are still investigating.
