PENN HILLS, PA – A 12-year-old girl reported missing on Thursday by police has been found safe in Ohio.
The Allegheny County Police Department announced this evening that 12-year-old Alyee Hammonds had been located.
“She was found, unharmed, in the Ohio area, and the department thanks everyone for their assistance in this effort,” the department said.
Her disappearance sparked a regional search as police tracked her down to Ohio.
The Allegheny Police took the girl’s mother, Demonique Raquel Hammonds, into custody after reporting that her daughter had run away but then fled the area.
She was taken into custody in Newport, Ohio, but when police caught up to her, Aylee was not with her.
The police did not provide any further details regarding the child’s return or the mother’s status.
