A 5-year-old child, who was abducted by her biological father three years ago in California, was found in Lynnwood on Thursday.

Snohomish County officials said an anonymous tip to Riverside County District Attorney's Office led them to the child's father, Micheal Stevens.

The tipster said that Stevens, who was going by the name Michael Lee, was using Craigslist to sell used vehicles in the Everett area.

Stevens was arrested by officials Thursday.

"The successful recovery of this missing 5 year old child is a great example of multiple agencies from various jurisdictions working together to protect the most vulnerable members of our communities," said U.S. Marshal Jacob Green.
