San Francisco police spokesman Albie Esparza says officers were called to the area when the girl's adult cousin, who lives in San Francisco, just happened to see her, along with their uncle, around 1:44 p.m.
Esparza says the uncle, Charles Berlinghoff, and a second adult male gave phony names to the officers. But the cousin, who has not been named, confirmed their actual identity.
The suspect is her uncle, Charles David Berlinghoff, 44.
He was taken into custody on an outstanding $100,000 warrant for keeping his niece from her parents and a $100,000 warrant for undisclosed charges.
The case is the second child abduction case in two days to be resolved in San Francisco.
Responsible agency: Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at 245-6540.
