Abducted W. Va. Child Reunited With Her Mother

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The mother of a 2-year-old abducted girl from West Virginia was brought to the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Washington County Friday evening to be reunited with her daughter.

Several hours earlier, in the small town of Richeyville, a few miles away, the child was found at the home of a man who picked up her and her alleged abductor, 23-year-old Timothy White.

The two were walking along a road, when Jim Weid spotted them and became concerned.

Weid told KDKA-TV: “Something didn’t seem right. So, I asked them to get in my van. Well, not really ask him to get in; he just opened the door and got in. Told him it’s too cold out for a kid.”

But, before Weid could get home, White jumped out of the vehicle, jumped in an Atlantic Broadband van that was idling in the neighborhood, and took off leaving the child with Weid.

The child was unhurt in the incident.

Police still don’t know a motive as to why White carjacked a vehicle earlier in the day in Preston County, W. Va., with the child in the back seat.

“I may have saved the kid’s life, but that doesn’t make me a hero,” Weid added.
