The Virginia Beach Police Department has announced that 2-year-old Zuri Dorsey has been found safe and her 27-year-old father, Deandre Dorsey, is now in custody, as stated in an edited Facebook post by the Virginia Police Department.
Rumors had circulated on Sunday afternoon that an unidentified man and 2-year-old child was found dead inside a vehicle in Largo, Maryland, were that of 2-year-old Zuri Dorsey and her father, Deandre Dorsey after a popular Maryland blog posted about the discovery.
Although the Instagram page did not name any individuals, social media speculated that it may have been referring to the abducted Virginia toddler.
Just shortly after a non-reputable outlet, “SNBC13,” posted that the two had been found dead at 6:49 p.m., Virginia Beach Police edited a social media post about Zuri’s abduction and confirmed that Zuri had been found and her dad, Deandre, was in custody.
On Saturday morning, Virginia Beach police said that Deandre had gone inside a home on Sapphire Drive, taken Zuri out of bed, and gotten inside a red 2016 Honda Accord headed for North Carolina.
Police have not yet released details on where Zuri and Deandre were found.
