CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Thirty-four-year-old Kisha Taylor of Chesterfield County left her house this past Memorial Day in her car, but never returned.

Family hadn't heard from her since, so naturally they got worried. But all that worry has turned to joy now that, after a nearly 48-hour search, she has been found by Chesterfield County Police.

"Thank y’all so much for finding my baby. Thank you," says Gladys Wyatt, Kisha’s mother.

Prayers and hugs were giving all around for this family after learning Taylor had been found.

"We thank y’all so much. You just don't know a burden has been lifted off of us,” said Wyatt

Izjona Taylor, Kish’s daughter was beyond elated saying, "When I see her, I'm going to lay in bed with her all day. No -- I don't know? I'm just going to hug her all day."

The family got the call before 5 p.m. Wednesday from Chesterfield County Police that Taylor was safe.

"I’d just like to thank the Chesterfield Police Department,” said Taylor’s aunt, Neicy Callahan. “Everybody that did something big to something small to find her -- this is the best news there is."

Wyatt was more than thrilled saying her family doesn’t have to cry any more. She only has happy tears now that her daughter is safe.

Chesterfield County Police have not released where they found Taylor, but did say she will return home in two days.
