A 12-year-old girl whose mother was found dead in their native Virginia earlier this week turned up in San Francisco today.

Brittany Mae Smith was spotted in a Richmond District store. Her mother's boyfriend, Jeffrey Scott Easley, is in custody. He is suspected of abducting the child -- and of killing her mother.

The man and girl were spotted at around 2 p.m. in a Safeway and taken into custody shortly thereafter. Smith is currently safe with child protective services. Easley is incarcerated; the Roanoke County, Va. police issued a warrant for him earlier this week on abduction charges.
