A 16-year-old babysitter who disappeared with a 7-month-old boy has been charged.

The missing 7-month-old from Baltimore was found safe in northeast Washington early Monday.

Police said the baby, Ki' Yauhn Birch, was visiting his father in Baltimore and was left in the care of 16-year-old Jonae Boozer. The family said Boozer took the infant from the home and then disappeared for days.

Boozer, who has a blond mohawk and several facial piercings, was described in a regional lookout to police. Early this morning someone spotted her at a bus stop in Northeast and called 911. 

Police said the baby was with Boozer and was unharmed. Law enforcement picked up both babysitter and child at the 4400 block of Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue.

Boozer was charged as an adult with two counts of child abduction, one count of second-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree burglary.
