BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A 3-year-old Bridgeport boy who was taken Wednesday by his babysitter's friend was found safe, the Connecticut Post said.

The babysitter and her friend, Kashunda Gandy, 36, admitted they had smoked PCP together, the Post said.

A Bridgeport resident, Gandy was charged with risk of injury to a child and second-degree reckless endangerment and was held on $25,000 bond, the Post said.
