A 12-year-old girl who was reported missing early Monday morning has been found in Kent, according to Seattle police.

The girl and an 8-month-old infant were reported missing early Monday morning, police said. The 8-month-old was reported missing by her mother; it’s unclear who reported the older girl missing. Police say the older girl was supposed to be babysitting the infant.

Earlier Monday, the baby was found with a family friend.

Police did not have an explanation about why the older girl was not with the baby.

ORIGINAL POST, 9:30 a.m. | Seattle police say they have found an 8-month-old girl reported missing early Monday morning.

Police spokesman Drew Fowler said the infant’s mother reported the child, Zariah Smith, missing. She was later found with a family friend.

“We just found the baby safe. We’re still working to get questions answered,” Fowler said just after 9 a.m.

Police are still looking for a 12-year-old girl, believed to be a relative of the 8-month-old. The girl, identified as Amazia Lynch, is believed to be a niece of the 8-month-old’s mother, Fowler said.

Fowler did not have any information on who reported the older girl missing.
