iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — A young girl who disappeared from her bedroom late Tuesday night was found in Woodland Hills, Calif., according to police.

The 10-year-old girl had apparently disappeared from her bed at  approximately 3:30 in the morning.  After a house-to-house search she re-appeared — seemingly out of nowhere — close to 12 hours later at a Chevron gas station.  

According to the Los Angeles Times, there was no sign of forced entry at the girl’s home. However, the back door was left unlocked and a side gate was found to be open.

According to LAPD Captain Chris Pitcher, a suspect took the girl from her home and later dropped her off.

This young girl was taken to an area hospital to be checked out, as she has cuts and bruises. Police are now investigating multiple crime scenes and searching for the person who took the young girl.
