The baby's mother is currently in jail.

This afternoon, Tampa police tweeted a photo of the baby safely in the arms of a detective. they said she had been dropped off at the home of a family friend by her father.

"Found thanks to social media! She is unharmed and happy," the tweet proclaimed.

The elder Smith has not been located.
