ORANGE, VA (WWBT) -

An Orange County woman faces two felony charges in connection with the kidnapping of her niece.

Olivia Dallas is charged with abduction and unauthorized use of a vehicle. She was taken into custody around 12:45 p.m. Wednesday by Virginia State Police in Accomack County after an AMBER alert was issued for her niece Amiyah M. Dallas.

The 5-year-old was found less than a half-hour after the AMBER Alert was issued, when a Virginia State Police trooper patrolling Route 13 in Accomack found the girl and her aunt. The burgundy Mercedes had a flat-tire. Police say Olivia was in the driver seat and Amiyah was inside unharmed. The child was taken to the Department of Social Services in Accomack, where she's being reunited with her family.
