An autistic girl who went missing in 2019 has been found by the Police in Arizona, USA.
Glendale Police Department officials said on Wednesday that Alicia Navarro, who went missing when she was 14 years old, was found safe in a Montana town located near the U.S – Canadian border.
Alicia Navarro is now 18 years old.
Navarro was described as a high-functioning autistic teen who left home in the middle of the night in 2019.
Officials said during the press conference that Navarro is asking for privacy.
Jessica Nunez, Alicia’s mother, was relentless in finding her daughter even as years went by.
“We are happy, and at the same time, we are hopeful we will be able to supply this family with a little more closure,” Glendale Police spokesperson Jose Santiago said.
Police say that Alicia Navarro went to a local police station located in Montana which is 40 miles south of the U.S.-Canadian border.
Video provided by police show Alicia Navarro saying “No, no one hurt me” after police asked if she was hurt.
An investigation into her disappearance by the Glendale Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation is ongoing.
