The Los Angeles Police Department said Sunday a 7-year-old girl who went missing with her mother the prior morning has been found.
Earlier Sunday, concerned family members asked for the public’s help in the search for Ruby Alvarado and her mother, 24-year-old Xyla Aguirre. The mother and daughter were last seen near the 3100 block of West Sixth Street in Koreatown around 9 a.m. Saturday, according to LAPD.
Aguirre was making a family visit, police said.
Just before 6 p.m., LAPD released a statement saying Alvarado was found. But the statement did not give any details on her condition or whether her mother was also found.
Police had described Alvarado as having brown hair and eyes, and she was wearing a pink and blue dress with “LOL” on the front. She stands about 3 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs about 40 pounds, LAPD said.
The agency described Aguirre as 5 feet, 3 inches tall and about 110 pounds. She also has brown hair and brown eyes.
LAPD released an image of Alvarado but disclosed no further details about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.
