(WJLA) - The Baltimore County girl whose disappearance set off an Amber Alert last week is finally back home and reunited with her twin sister.

Eleven-year-old Caitlyn Virts and her sister, Cayla are now in the care of social workers, according to their grandmother, who hopes to be granted custody of the siblings.

The twins' father, Timothy Virts, is accused of kidnapping Caitlyn after killing their mother, Bobbie Jo Cortez, a crime for which he is facing a first-degree murder charge.

Timothy Virts waived extradition from South Carolina, where he and Caitlyn were found in a motel over the weekend.
