Family says 5-year-old Zoie Jackson has been found safe in Texas.

She had been missing since Monday, Feb. 3, when she was picked up from Detroit Community School by her mother, Carmela Jackson, who is only allowed four-hour monthly, supervised visits. Zoie's substitute teacher was unaware and released Zoie when she recognized her mother.

The two were discovered when Carmela's 2002 Lexus was pulled over for erratic driving in Dickens, Texas, which is east of Lubbock.

The officer ran the plate and learned the vehicle was wanted in Detroit in connection with a child abduction. Carmela was taken into custody without incident.

Zoie is in custody of Child Protective Services and is in good physical health.

Carmela has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Bi-Polar and postpartum depression. Authorities thought she may have been headed for Elkhart, Indiana, where some of her family lives.

Zoie is the daughter of a Detroit police officer who has full custody of her. The day she was taken he was undergoing surgery and is currently bedridden.
