The girl, Laylani Mosely, was reported missing Wednesday afternoon by a family member, according to Huntington Beach police and the California Highway Patrol.
Laylani and her grandmother, 57-year-old Carolyn Ferguson, were found just after 6 p.m. approximately 300 miles away at a gas station in Arizona's Maricopa County, Maricopa County sheriff's officials said.
Ferguson's PT Cruiser had become disabled and was brought to the gas station by a mobile mechanic, according to Karen Akins, the gas station clerk credited with helping authorities locate the grandmother and baby.
Akins called police after seeing the grandmother "acting suspicious," officials said.
Akins' boss confirmed that the pair were the focus of a California Amber Alert.
“She took the baby bottle and went to the cappuccino machine and filled it up with cappuccino,
And poured strawberry milk in with it and shook it. And tried to give the baby cappuccino,” Akins said.
Ferguson has a history of mental illness, police said.
Laylani is described as 15 pounds with black hair and wearing a pink onesie. Ferguson was described as 5 feet 7 inches tall with blonde hair and blue eyes.
