INDIANAPOLIS - Emergency crews say they have found a 9-year-old girl missing for several hours from the east side Thursday.
Indianapolis police said 9-year-old Mitike Eiler was reported missing around 9:45 a.m. on the 1500 block of Lasalle Street near Brookside Park.
Eiler had reportedly gotten angry after having an argument with her parents and had walked away.
"And I'm sure at one time in our lives we all had that feeling of being mad at our parents either because of rules or things that we have to follow ... but you should not run away because of the danger that's involved," Lt. John Walton said.
Indianapolis police, Marion County Sheriff's deputies and Indianapolis firefighters joined in the effort to find Eiler. Police also said they received numerous tips from citizens during the search.
Eiler was spotted by Walton, around 1:30 p.m. downtown near the intersection of Washington and Meridian Streets.
Eiler reportedly told police that a woman had helped her and bought her food.
"It was wonderful for someone to stop and help the little girl, but any time a child is in a situation like that, there is something bigger wrong and you should call police immediately," Walton said.
It wasn't immediately clear how Eiler had arrived downtown.
