  1. I can’t find anything confirming that she is found safe. There are some updates blog article headlines and some leading to deleted articles but there is no news article text that updates this story. Unconfirmed?

    • Hello, Deon:

      I see what you mean! I received the update that this girl was found safe by an nonprofit and by an advocate who rescues missing people. In cases where I cannot confirm them as safe, I mark them as “No Longer missing.” I don’t know why I did not do this in this instance.
