Detroit Police: Missing 13-Year-Old Girl Found Safe

August 13, 2019 - 5:42 pm

DETROIT (WWJ) - A teen who disappeared from her Detroit home overnight has been found. 

Detroit police earlier reached out for tips in the case of Darnisha Simms, who gave her family a scare when she wasn't in her room at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Simms' mother reported to police she'd told the 13-year-old to turn off the lights and TV at around 1:30 a.m., and that was the last time anyone saw her. 

Late Tuesday afternoon, police sent an update saying Simms had been found and was safe.

It's unclear where she'd been. No details were released.
