SPD Update: Missing Springfield Girl Found Safe

Springfield Police Department

Update at 10:44 AM:   Springfield Police Department Lt. Tony Vienhage confirms that 8-year-old girl Rosalee Clark has been found this morning, and that she appears to be unharmed.  Vienhage told reporters that the child appears to have stayed the night at a neighbor's apartment.  According to Vienhage, patrol officers did an exhaustive search to try to locate Rosalee.  He said they knocked on nearly every door at the apartment complex where she lived but did not get an answer at every one, including the apartment where she was located.  Vienhage said Rosalee had gone to stay with a different neighbor while her mother transported someone to the hospital.  The investigation is ongoing.

Rosalee is white, 4’4” tall, 75 pounds with light brown hair.  She was wearing a red  polo shirt, gray pants and black sandals.
