An 11-year-old girl who was reported missing in Granada Hills after leaving a concerning note behind Monday morning has been found, according to relatives.

Elizabeth "Lizzy" Peralejo was found at a bus stop and brought back to her parents house, the cousin said. The family member did not have any information about the exact location or city of the bus stop.

Prior to being found, Peralejo was last seen about 6:45 a.m. in the 11400 block of Hayvenhurst Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The family called police after finding a note from the girl, according to LAPD Sgt. Kevin Hawn.

Her disappearance spurred an all-out search that included the use of an airship and K-9 units, according to Hawn. Police still had not located Elizabeth after searching for six hours.

“Our concern is very grave," he told KTLA in an interview shortly before 1 p.m.

She was found sometime before 2:45 p.m.

No additional information about the incident was immediately released by LAPD.
