PROVO — Police have found a 12-year-old girl with special needs who went missing Tuesday afternoon in Provo.
Lillian was last seen leaving the Provo Recreation Center, 320 W. 500 North, about 1:15 p.m., according to a tweet from Provo police. She was wearing a teal bathrobe, black swimsuit and was carrying a light green backpack.
She was found a couple hours later at a Lehi bus station, according to Provo Police Sgt. Nisha King. Someone affiliated with Utah Transit Authority called Provo police to tell them where the girl was, King added.
King said officers aren't sure how Lillian ended up at the station, but King said police think she took a bus from outside the recreation center.
Lillian was found so quickly, police believe, thanks to the visibility local news outlets gave to the case, as well as the police department's social media posts. Lillian's last name was not released.
At 1:15 pm, 12 year old Lillian, who is special needs, left Provo Recreation Center wearing a Teal bathrobe, black swimsuit, and a light green backpack.
