The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said the 2-year-old reported missing just after 5 p.m. from a house on Armstrong Road near Hastings was located safe about 30 minutes later.

The mother woke up and the child was gone, so she called authorities, but deputies quickly learned that a family member or acquaintance went to the store with the child.

The Sheriff's Office was ramping for a full-scale search when the report came that the child was safe.
