A Newark mother is being credited for finding and rescuing a missing eight-year-old girl.  Janice Reddick spotted the child sitting on a bench at Newark Penn Station at about eleven o'clock last night, 13 hours after she went missing from a playground outside the Bradley Court Housing Projects on Munn Avenue.  Reddick, who was part of a group of mothers looking for the missing girl, said she asked her if she was Nevaeh Blaine and when she said, "yes," she grabbed her from the bench and ran with her. Reddick said Nevaeh was with another woman who tried to prevent her from taking the child.  Police are questioning that woman, trying to determine why Nevaeh was at the train station, and how she got there.
