MINNEAPOLIS - Minneapolis police say a 10-year-old girl who was reported missing has been found safe.
Symbri Zinki had told her father she was spending the night at one friend's house, but actually ended up staying with someone else.
Detectives located her Friday afternoon.
Police spokesman Sgt. William Palmer says Symbri's father called to report her missing after last seeing her at their home on the 3500 block of Lyndale Avenue South about 2 p.m. Thursday, and talking to her on the phone about 8:45 p.m.
Palmer described the missing girl as a white female, four feet tall and 85 pounds. Symbri has brown shoulder length hair and was last seen wearing orange shorts and a white t-shirt with a design on the front, possibly a cat.
Minneapolis Police were concerned for the girl's welfare due to her age and the fact that she did not spend the night at her friend's home, that she always travels by bike and the bike is at her residence, and that she left her residence without any shoes.
Officers also learned that her cell phone was turned off a few hours after she was last heard from, and the phone has not yet come back on.
