Missing 12-year-old girl found safe, police say

Toronto police say a 12-year-old girl who had been missing for a month has been found safe and sound.

The girl was found Wednesday evening in the Jane and Finch neighbourhood — the area where she had last been seen.

Her discovery comes a day after her mother turned herself into police. The 31-year-old is charged with abduction and breach of recognizance.

The girl lives with her grandmother.
