Searchers in eastern Alabama have found a four-year-old girl who was missing for two days in a wooded area. The girl was in good condition and had a dog at her side when rescuers approached, authorities said.
Authorities said the child, Vadie Sides, disappeared from her babysitter’s sight on Wednesday afternoon while they were walking in a backyard with a hound dog. Lee county sheriff Jay Jones said searchers found Sides after two days of searching.
Jones said the girl is in good condition despite her ordeal and the hound dog was at her side when she was found.
“We are beyond happy,” Jones wrote in a text message.
