MONROVIA, Calif., March 5 (UPI) -- Police said a 22-year-old woman who was a child when she was allegedly abducted by her mother has been found in Los Angeles County, Calif.

Investigators said Thursday they located Jessica Click-Hill, who was reported missing by her father in 1995, and arrested Click-Hill's mother, Wendy D. Hill, after authorities were able to track the mother-daughter pair to Monrovia, Calif., the Contra Costa (Calif.) Times reported.

FBI and police investigators were able to locate the two individuals in Monrovia thanks to a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

"They are a clearinghouse for people to make tips about missing children," FBI spokesman Joseph Schadler said of the center. The original source of the tip was not released.

The Times said Hill, 52, is being held on $250,000 bail after being arrested on warrants connected to the 1995 alleged abduction in Walnut Creek, Calif.
