A 13-year-old Poway girl who went missing Tuesday afternoon was found safe about 7 p.m. Wednesday near her home.
The girl was seen just before 3:30 p.m. Tuesday leaving her home in an unincorporated area near Poway to take the family dog for a walk. Her family called the Sheriff’s Department when Cassidy didn’t return home, officials said.
“We appreciate the outpouring of support from the community, especially from the many people who came forward to offer their assistance in the search … ,” sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Ralph said in a statement. “We also want to thank the media for their assistance.”
The girl and her dog were “doing OK” and were to be reunited with their family, Ralph said.
The Sheriff’s Search and Rescue unit worked with the Poway Sheriff’s Station and the sheriff’s Juvenile Services Group to locate the missing girl and her dog.
