WASHINGTON -- Former mayor Adrian Fenty's daughter was taken into protective custody after being found alone in a bathroom at a D.C. recreation center on Tuesday night, according to a report on NBC4:

D.C. police were called to the Upshur Recreation Center in Northwest after a woman who appeared to be drunk tried to claim the four-year-old child, police said.

Sources told News4 that woman is the sister-in-law of Adrian Fenty. No charges have been filed in the case.

The Washington City Paper reported in January that Fenty and his wife -- who have twin boys in addition to their 4-year-old daughter -- were separating.

ABC7 is reporting that Fenty's daughter was quickly returned to family members on Tuesday:

A spokeswoman for D.C. Child and Family Services says the procedure in cases such as these is for the agency to look for family members who can claim a child left in an inappropriate situation. The source tells ABC7 that the young girl was reunited with other family members within two hours of Tuesday's incident.
