Missing New Jersey 5-Year-Old Girl, Mother Found

A 32-year-old New Jersey woman reported missing along with her 5-year-old daughter earlier this week have been found, authorities said Wednesday.

It wasn't clear where Cecilia Manzueta and her child were located, but authorities had been searching for them since Friday, when the girl's father called police. The duo had last been seen at a Holiday Inn in Newark. 

They were found in good condition Tuesday evening, authorities said. 

Prosecutors say their disappearance seems to have stemmed from a domestic disagreement between the girl's parents.

It wasn't clear if Manzueta was expected to face charges.
