Missing Colorado Springs girl found safe
COLORADO SPRINGS — A missing 2-year-old Colorado Springs girl has been found and is safe.
Colorado Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Medina says a tip received by police after the state agency issued an Amber Alert Wednesday led investigators to a home in nearby Fountain. Essence Lovato was found safe in the home.
Essence Lovato had been missing for a day and a half. She was last seen with a 38-year-old woman who had permission to take the girl to her grandfather’s house. The girl never showed up and police are calling the woman a person of interest in the girl’s disappearance.
