THE BRONX — (WPIX) A 2-year-old girl with autism who went missing in the Bronx after her father allegedly abducted her has been found, police said.

A suspect has been taken into custody, officials  said.

“The child was taken under circumstances that lead police to believe that they are in imminent danger of serious physical injury and/or death,” the alert said.

Seniya Benitez was last seen with her biological father, Christian Benitez, Tuesday afternoon at an apartment along Gleason and Castle Hill avenues.

Benitez, 21, is not permitted to have unsupervised contact with the toddler, according to police.
