— A missing Guilford County toddler and her mother were found safe early Sunday afternoon, but the man who authorities believe kidnapped them remains at large.

Authorities told WFMY News that 2-year-old Jasmine Key and her mother, Jennifer Andrews, 27, were kidnapped at gunpoint by her father, Bradley Charles Key, from their home in the Oakwood Forest mobile-home community, 4100 U.S. 29 North, around 7 a.m. Sunday.

Guilford County sheriff's deputies found the the girl and her mother safe about six hours later at undisclosed location.

Bradley Key, 30, of 1787 W. 3rd St. in Siler City, remains on the run and faces two counts of second-degree kidnapping.

He is the estranged husband of Andrews, authorities said. Andrews has been separated from him for some time and has an active domestic order against Bradley Key that prohibits him from contacting her.

Bradley Key is described as white male, 6 feet 1 inches tall, weighing 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He might be driving a red 1988 Ford Bronco with a white top and North Carolina license plate SRZ7894.

Authorities cautioned anyone who sees Bradley Key to not approach him. He served four years in prison for two 1998 armed robbery convictions, according to state Department of Correction records.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact the Guilford County Sheriff's Office at 336-631-3690 or Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.

    I'm glad they are both safe. I agree with babbleon... There's already a domestic order against him, and that didn't help...

    Thank god this one turned out well so far. Ms. Andrews, please put your safety above all - I know it's a hard time to move, but if you can, disappear.
