Update to previous story

The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office has located a 12 year-old, runaway girl from Lignum. At approximately 3 p.m. a group of concerned citizens at a Burger King in Locust Grove (on Route 3) reported that the girl was at the restaurant.

Shortly afterward, detectives made contact with the girl at Burger King and confirmed her identity.

She was unharmed and reunited with staff from Child Help, the facility she had run away from.

The girl was last seen Monday at Child Help around 8 p.m. Since last evening deputies, multiple K-9 units and a search helicopter were used to search in and around approximately 260 acres of the Child Help facility.
