JSO says missing 11-year-old girl found safe

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office announced just after noon Saturday that a missing 11-year-old girl had been found safe.

Police were called to the Leigh Meadows Apartments complex on Sunbeam Road, west of Craven Road, a little before midnight after family said the girl left on foot in an unknown direction.

Police sent a notice just before 11:30 a.m. Saturday saying witnesses had reported seeing the girl not far from where she was reported missing, wearing a “camo” jacket.

Within a half hour, they sent another notice saying she had been found safe. The girl was previously reported missing more than four months ago in early June and was found the next day.

NOTE: News4Jax has removed the girl’s name and photo from this story because she is no longer missing.
