Missing Passaic mom, 5-year-old daughter found safe

Authorities say a missing New Jersey mom and her 5-year-old daughter have been found safe.



Passaic County prosecutors announced Wednesday that 32-year-old Cecilia Manzueta of Passaic and her daughter, Valentina, were found around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday.



But they did not say where the pair had been found or provide further details on their disappearance.



The two had been reported missing on Friday night by Manzueta's husband, who is the child's father.



They had last been seen on Saturday at the Holiday Inn on Routes 1 and 9 south in Newark.
