BARTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. Authorities say a 2-year-old girl has been found safe after she wandered away from her home in a heavily wooded area of western Michigan.
An alert was issued Tuesday for Amber Smith. MLive.com says hundreds of volunteer searchers aided the search.
WJRW and WWTV/WWUP say Amber was found safe and healthy early Wednesday afternoon. Authorities plan to release more details Wednesday afternoon.
The girl was reported missing Tuesday afternoon from her home in Newaygo County's Barton Township, near the edge of the Manistee National Forest and about 55 miles north of Grand Rapids. Helicopters, four wheelers and dogs were being used as part of the search.
WOOD-TV reports the search was started as one square mile, but broadened late Tuesday. Crews from neighboring Kent County also joined the search.
