Perry was found unharmed on the 1200 block of Gillespie Avenue around 9:30 p.m. and was returned to her family, Banks says.

There is no word on whether there may be criminal charges pending.

I always see on TV shows a person has to be missing over 24 hours before the authorities will do anything. The article didn't say how long she has been gone (or I missed it). I am wondering if time is different for young children? Just curious but I certainly hope she is found, safe!!!

May be wrong but I thought the initial posting before latest update showed she was missing since Apr 7 which tied in with the "away from home that long" statement.

Thank goodness she was returned safe. Too may of our youth are having their childhoods stolen by bad people.
