A former babysitter has been arrested after a two-year-old Massachusetts girl was discovered sitting naked by the side of a road with her head shaved after being kidnapped.

US police said 21-year-old Abigail Hanna is being held without bail after the alleged incident in Hamilton.

Hanna is described as a former babysitter of the child, who was reported missing from her home on Friday morning.

The toddler was found alone hours later, about seven miles from her home. She was taken to Boston Children's Hospital for evaluation.

Hanna, of Topsfield, faces charges including kidnapping and assault and battery on a child.
