A missing ten-year-old girl was found Friday, May 16 after she disappeared from her home.

Maumelle police chief Sam Williams said the girl was found safe hiding in a friend’s tree house.

He said police used its Code Red emergency alert system to ask for the public’s help finding the girl after her mother reported her missing.

Police saturated the area looking for any signs of the girl, Williams said. Fortunately, she was found less than an hour after the alert went out so a second notifying residents she had been found.
