The circumstances behind Heidi Todd's kidnapping are still not clear.
Heidi was taken by Kurzejeski back to the fire station where she "watched the Disney channel and requested cookies and chocolate milk". "She did not invite anyone into her residence", Taylor said.
DHR arrived around 7:34 p.m. and took Todd away from the Riverside firehouse. The 4-year-old disappeared Tuesday from her home on Johns Island.
Police are still looking for the abductor. Police officers, firefighters, the Coast Guard and other rescue units launched a search near her home on Johns Island.
Part of Wednesday morning's search was focused on the lake in front of the home.
The State Law Enforcement Division has asked law enforcement agencies across the state to look for the girl.
The mayor said there was no Amber alert issued for Heidi because authorities did not have enough information to meet the criteria for one.
Heidi was last seen wearing pink trousers and a blue shirt.
