MILWAUKEE -- A 6-year-old girl who was considered "critically missing" was found safe Tuesday, June 4. Police said Cierra Warren was dropped off at MPD's District 5 station Tuesday afternoon after she had been missing for nearly 24 hours.
It all started near 68th and Main on Monday afternoon, June 3, when Warren's dad said she got off the bus and never made it home. Police said she was missing since 3 p.m. Monday.
The bus driver told her dad that when she got off, there was a woman waiting for her, who she seemed to know. The two hugged and took off in a dark-colored car.
After that, Warren's father reached out to police, the news and social media -- sharing her picture with hope someone would recognize her and return her.
Though she was found safe, police on Tuesday afternoon called this an active investigation, and did not immediately release any details about who dropped the little girl off, or where she was.
Police said Warren did not fit the criteria for an Amber Alert to be issued.
