The British police managed to prevent the abduction of a four-year-old girl in the nick of time.

Thursday at 4:57 p.m. local time the police got a tip about the kidnapping, the plane was supposed to leave at 6:00 p.m. The plane was stopped. Cops went aboard and found the girl. A 32-year-old male has been apprehended.

โ€œ The plane was already taxiing and was ready to go in the air, but we got there just in time,โ€ says a police spokesman to the BBC. She calls the case โ€œhugely complicated and challenging.โ€

What the relationship between the man and the girl is is unclear, but they do know each other. Her mother had reported her daughter missing the day before. โ€œIt was a race against the clock to find the man.โ€

The suspect was interrogated on Friday. Hes out on bail by now. The girl has reunited with her mother.
