BARNAUL, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Policemen in the Altai region have found the missing eight-year-old girl safe and sound, the Russian Investigation Committee's regional department told Itar-Tass.
The search for missing Nastya Avrashko is stopped, as her whereabouts are established. The girl is safe and sound and is already brought to her parents, a department source said.
Eight year-old Nastya was lost in the Talmenka district in the Altai Territory. Dozens of policemen and volunteers searched for the girl. All the district police personnel were placed on alert on Friday.
The girl disappeared on Thursday evening near her home at the station of Ozerki under unclear circumstances. Her parents themselves for almost four hours tried to find her and then called police. Police continued the active search throughout the night. Specialists with dogs joined them. The frosty weather seriously complicated the situation. Assistance in the search was provided by transport police, the administration and the population, an Altai police source said. Streets, deserted buildings and all the passing trains were examined. The girl’s neighbours, teachers, parents of her friends and other pupils from the school class were questioned. Chief of the Russian Interior Ministry's Altai regional department Renat Timerzyanov personally oversaw the search operation.
