PENN HILLS (AP) — Authorities say a woman charged with kidnapping a toddler in western Pennsylvania is alleging that she delivered the child to a woman after she was "sold."

Twenty-five-year-old ride-share driver Sharena Islam Nancy faces charges including kidnapping of a minor in the disappearance of Nalani Johnson, who will be 2 years old this month.

Allegheny County police say the child's father said he was riding in a car Saturday evening in Penn Hills and got out to get the child, but it drove off. An Amber Alert was issued and the car was found and Nancy arrested, but the child wasn't found.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Nancy alleges the father "sold" the toddler for $10,000 and she turned the girl over to a woman at a roadside rendezvous.
