A 15-month-old Utah girl taken away from her mother nearly three months ago was reunited with her Wednesday.

"I just want to say thanks to everybody. I'm so glad she's back," Danielle Larsen said while holding her daughter, Sophea, shortly after being reunited with her at Salt Lake City's Unified Police Department headquarters.

Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder said Jamie Webb, 39, the man who is believed to have taken the young girl and kept her away from her mother since February, dropped off the child at his father's house Wednesday. His father then called police.

The girl appeared to have been "very well cared for" and did not show any signs of being physically harmed, Winder said.
