GREENSBORO, N.C. — Veronica Capel was inside Words of Faith Christian Center on Dillard Street in Greensboro when she heard from other church members a little girl was wandering outside without parents. 

"I was like, 'Oh, my goodness it may be that little girl,' but what is she doing here in the dark this time of night,'" said Capel.

She called 911 immediately after pulling up a photo on her phone to see if the child looked like missing 3-year-old Ahlora Lindiment. 

"I was holding a picture like, 'Is that her? That’s her!' My daughter said, 'Mom, it doesn’t matter, we got a little girl here and we don’t know who she belongs to, call 911 immediately,'" said Capel. 

She told 911 she thought they found Ahlora. The dispatcher told her they were sending detectives. 

In the meantime, Capel and church member Fonda Curtis, asked the little girl questions. 

"We showed her a picture, and we said, 'Is your name Ahlora?' She said, 'Yes, my name is Ahlora' and so we were like, 'Oh, my God that’s her!'" said Curtis.

Curtis and Capel say they gave her juice and crackers.

"She ate every one of them. She was very hungry," said Capel. 

"She was calm. She was relaxed. She seemed at ease. She was not crying. She did not seem frightened at all," said Curtis. 

The women say even the detectives seemed relieved when they realized the child was safe.

"It was interesting to see the compassion of the officers. They each came in. I think they all wanted to kind of verify because I’m sure they all had a part in what was taking place," said Curtis. 

Both are just happy Ahlora is home safe with her family.

"I’m just excited that she’s okay, she’s found and returned to her rightful place, so we’re very happy about that," said Capel.
