RS fan Josie Ostler: This is my daughter. Several area police depts came to help find her and our amazing family, friends and neighbors came to our rescue. Mommy was able to locate her asleep in the coat closet. After 2 officers had already looked, only mommy knew the coats on the floor looked suspicious;) And under the coat was a sleeping little girl. Thank you everyone for your prayers! I cannot tell you how much we appreciate it!
