A 12-year-old Aurora girl that went missing Thursday has been found, Aurora police officials said Friday night.
Hazel Maria Gonzales was "located safe and sound," according to police spokesman Dan Ferrelli, who said
more details would be provided Saturday.
She had last been seen by family members about 7 a.m. Thursday at her grandmother's home on the 300 block of Cedar Street in Aurora.
Police said Hazel recently moved to the 100 block of Harbor Drive in Oswego but still attends Aurora's Jefferson Middle School, 1151 Plum St. Her mother dropped her off at the grandmother's home about 6:15 a.m. Thursday to be taken to school, police said.
About 7:40 a.m., it was discovered Hazel was no longer at the Cedar Street address. About 10 a.m., school administrators informed her mother she never showed up for class, authorities said.
Family members reported Hazel missing about 6 p.m. Thursday after unsuccessfully searching for her on their own, according to a news release.
Police said Hazel has apparently not gone missing before. Authorities said it was possible she may be have been with high schoolers in the area where she went missing, though a search of homes in that area Thursday failed to locate her.
