A young girl who has been missing for more than two years has been found alive in Ulster County, New York.

Paislee Shultis, then 4, was reported missing in July 2019, but police found her Monday night in a secret room under a staircase in Saugerties, New York, WCBS-TV reported.

The little girl would be in good condition. She was found more than 150 miles from her home.

Police had been to the scene before looking for the girl, but after a two-year search she was found in a cold and cramped secret space under a staircase.

Paislee was first reported missing in the village of Cayuga Heights near Ithaca in Tompkins County.

Police have long suspected her birth parents, Kimberly Cooper and Kirk Shultis, of kidnapping the girl, but previous searches of their home in Saugerties, New York, have turned up empty.

Then police were told this week that the girl was being held at home.

The cops got a warrant and during the search an officer noticed something on the stairs leading to the basement which made him look closer.

“He took a flashlight and looked between the cracks between the steps. He saw what he thought was a blanket, and at that point they used a halogen tool, a break-in tool, and they started tearing up the steps of the staircase itself. At one point they saw little feet, as he said,” Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra said.

It was little Paislee, now 6, hiding in the hole, along with her alleged abductor and birth mother.

The neighbors were stunned that the missing little girl was still at home.

“I’m just shocked because they seemed like ordinary people,” said Annette Wrolsen.

The parents do not have custody. They were arrested and charged with interfering with the custody and endangering the welfare of a child. The girl’s paternal grandfather has also been charged, police said.

Caloway tried to speak to the parents at the family home, but a woman inside had little to say.

Police said the baby girl was in good health, in addition to being removed from society and kept in the Saugerties home for so long.

“First, this little girl didn’t have a chance to go to school. We’re pretty sure she probably wasn’t getting the proper medical care,” Sinagra said. “Obviously the family just couldn’t get her to a doctor because she was a missing person. The other concern is that you have a child who doesn’t write or read because he doesn’t haven’t had the opportunity to go to school. They will now.”

After this little girl was taken from the house, she was on her way to the police station when they walked past a McDonald’s. She told detectives she hadn’t had McDonald’s in such a long time, so they turned around and offered her a Happy Meal.

Paislee has since been returned to her legal guardian and reunited with her older sister.
