After the girl disappeared, her family got in touch with the local police. They launched a search operation that also included drones and police dogs. Citizens from Michigan and adjacent Wisconsin also took part in the search to comb a remote wooded area in an attempt to find the girl.

Thankfully, a citizen from the search party found the girl about 4.8 km away from her home. She was seen sleeping soundly with her pet dogs around her. Medical personnel were soon called to check on the little one and she appeared to be in good health.
