Police discovered a 10-year-old girl alive who was kidnapped by two men from her home in Northridge, California.

According to police, two men abducted Nicole Ryan on Wednesday from her bedroom and kept her for much of the day before taking her to Kaiser hospital six miles from her home, ABC reported.

She was found wandering in a Starbucks parking lot around 3 p.m. The girl was reported to have cuts and bruises to her face.

"She was forcibly taken from her home and was released over here and was held by individuals for approximately nine to ten hours," LAPD Capt. William Hayes said. "She was dropped off by the suspects at a location, Kaiser Hospital at Desoto and Burbank. And she walked from that location to here where she was recovered."

According to Hayes, Ryan told police that one of the suspects was a 18-year-old Caucasian male, but no description was obtained for the second suspect.

"I've got a girl who was abducted," Hayes said at a media briefing Wednesday night. "I don't know why."

At the hospital where she was being treated, the girl told investigators the men held her for nine or 10 hours at an abandoned house near her home, Hayes said.

Police believe two vehicles were involved in the abduction and officers have recovered one of them. Investigators have closed off several crime scenes in Ryan's home including a storage facility in the investigation and manhunt.

Police indicated that there were no clear signs of forced entry into the house, except for a gate outside that was left open. Detectives conclude that the men somehow made their way in through the back of the house.

"We have a 10-year-old girl that's been traumatized here, she was forcibly taken from her home," Hayes said. "If these individuals are brazen enough to do that, I'm putting all the resources I have to make sure they don't do it again."

Capt. Kris Pitcher said at a news conference that the young girl's parents reported her missing just before 4 a.m., and more than 11 hours later, someone who recognized her from missing media reports located her near the coffee shop and immediately alerted police officers who were nearby.

Ryan was wearing an oversized white T-shirt and had no shoes on when she was found.

"She basically is in shock right now," Pitcher said.
