FWPD said they had crews searching for the girl locally as she was believed to be somewhere in Fort Wayne.

They say such mutual aid efforts are common across police departments.

Huntington Co. Sheriff Chris Newton just confirmed with Fort Wayne's NBC that Raelynn was found safe here in Fort Wayne.

Newton said she was "out and about" in The Fort.

He said a man near her was found to have an unrelated outstanding warrant out of Allen County, so detectives will question him to see if he has any connection to her disappearance.

Detectives are questioning Raelynn to determine if she was enticed to run away or if she left on her own accord.

The State Police canceled the Silver Alert late Tuesday afternoon.
