BREWER, Maine — A 7-year-old Brewer child reported missing early Tuesday evening by one of her parents was found safe and sound inside of her home.

The call about the child, which came in about 6 p.m., indicated that she had left home on foot. That set off a search of her north Brewer neighborhood, Brewer police Cpl. Nelson Feero said Tuesday night.

In addition to Brewer police, a Maine State Police dog tracking team was brought in to help find the child, Feero said.

The girl was located shortly before 7 p.m., he said.

“She was actually hiding in her house. Everything is fine,” Feero said, adding that the girl was found when searchers rechecked the house.
