Minnesota BCA: 12-year-old St. Paul girl previously reported missing found safe

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) says a 12-year-old girl who was reported missing has now been found safe and is back with her family.

Earlier on Saturday, the agency and members of the St. Paul Police Department (SPPD) were asking the public to help them find the girl, who had last been seen on Oct. 4 on the 1100 block of Supornick Lane. She was reported missing on Oct. 6.

The girl’s mother told St. Paul police on Friday she believed her daughter was in a safe location, but she didn’t know where and was having trouble locating her. Officials said friends of the girl had been communicating with her and said she is okay.
