MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) — A 10-year-old girl who has been missing from Wisconsin for just over a week has been found safe in Arkansas.
Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve says Brianna Lujan of Amberg was found Sunday morning in Perry County, Ark.
Sauve says at this time it appears the girl has been unharmed.
She’s in protective services in Arkansas and waiting for family members to arrive.
Authorities had been looking for Lujan and Arlie Yarbrough since they disappeared March 31. Yarbrough was arrested on child abduction charges and is in custody in Arkansas pending extradition to Wisconsin.
Last week, authorities said Yarbrough was living with Brianna’s mother, and when she died recently he took Brianna without permission. The mother’s sister has legal custody.
