A four-year-old California girl reported missing Friday evening was found safely hiding under a bed, officials said.
NBC Los Angeles reports that Amieya Renee Stewart of Richmond was reported missing at about 5 p.m. during a family gathering.
The little girl was found around midnight, hiding under a bed. “She was surrounded by many different items and unfortunately had gone undetected,” Lt. Bisa French said. Police dogs were used and did not detect the little girl underneath the bed.
The girl’s mother told reporters she was sorry for worrying the public.
According to the little girl’s grandmother, she has a habit of hiding.
