A young girl who disappeared almost three years ago in New York City was found in Connecticut last Friday.

She vanished from her home in East New York, Brooklyn, in December 2021. The exact details of her disappearance weren’t given at the time.

The U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force and Bridgeport Police discovered her in Bridgeport after the NYPD asked for help earlier this month.

Now 16 years old, the girl is in good health and has been reunited with her parents.

According to a report from the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services, in 2021, 10,184 children were reported missing in New York. Most of them, about 93.2%, were runaways. There were only two cases of stranger abductions, seven where the abductor was known to the child, and 40 where a family member was involved.
