A six-year-old girl named Majesty Williams has been reunited with her father in Atlanta after being allegedly abducted by her mother, Andrea McCord, over two years ago. The police found Majesty safe and well in Mexico, where she was living with her mother and her mother's boyfriend. McCord and her boyfriend have been arrested and extradited to the United States to face charges. Majesty was taken from her father's home in Smyrna, Georgia, on April 1, 2021, when she was just four years old.

Her father, James Williams, reported her missing to the police, and an extensive investigation was launched.

The arrest of McCord and her boyfriend brings an end to a long and heartbreaking period for Majesty's family. Throughout the investigation, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) played a crucial role.

They partnered with the Smyrna Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service to locate Majesty. The police used various resources and strategies, and the case was featured on the REELZ television show On Patrol: Live. Cases involving missing children due to custodial interference can be challenging to raise awareness about.

However, NCMEC's efforts, including sharing home videos of Majesty, helped engage viewers and generate support for her father. They are relieved that Majesty is now safely back home.
