TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -- A western Indiana sheriff says a 12-year-old girl whom authorities feared had been abducted has been found unharmed.
Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing tells the Tribune-Star Alyssa Sedletzeck (sehd-LEHT'-zehk) was found Thursday afternoon at a home on Terre Haute's north side after the homeowner called police.
The girl reportedly gave the homeowner a false name while staying there with the homeowner's 18-year-old son.
Ewing says that after the homeowner heard about the missing sixth-grader, he found a picture and description of the girl online and called police. Police are interviewing both the girl and the teenage boy.
Alyssa's parents had reported her missing Sunday night after she told them she was going to visit a friend but never showed up there.
