Miracle was last seen with her mother, Tiffany Hardy, in the 2700 block of Gaylord Street in Denver around 5 p.m. Wednesday. The baby’s father reported both of them missing just after noon on Thursday.
Hardy was located Thursday morning at East 4th Avenue and Leyden Street in Denver’s Cherry Creek neighborhood, without Miracle. According to police, Hardy was naked and incoherent at the time she was found.
Aurora police said Miracle was found several miles away unharmed in Hardy’s 2016 Fiat.
The Fiat was towed away from the scene after the toddler was found safe Thursday night.
