SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

A woman accused of kidnapping her 2-year-old daughter and taking her to the mountains of North Carolina has been extradited back to Summerville.

Megan Briggs, 19, was charged with 1st degree burglary, kidnapping, and grand larceny charges during bond court Thursday morning.

According to Summerville police, Haley was abducted from her grandparent's home at 122 High Bridge Road at 4 a.m. July 19. Police say Megan Marie Briggs broke into the home and took the child.

Haley was adopted by Briggs' grandparents when she was four months old.

Police say Megan stole a pair of car keys from the house as well, using the car to get away. Authorities then were able to locate both the mother and the child in Haywood, NC, about 25 miles west of Asheville.

"It was just pure relief," said Haley's grandfather, Robert Briggs, after hearing Haley had been found safe. "I've been crying because I was so worried about Haley and I can't wait to get her in my arms again."

Briggs was denied bond.  During the hearing, she told the judge, "I've never met those people in my life."
