Authorities are searching for a 10-year-old girl who disappeared from her Northridge home overnight.
Los Angeles police Lt. Terri Brinkmeyer said officers went to the girl's home in the 8800 block of Oakdale Avenue after she was reported missing early Wednesday. Several police cars remained at the scene at mid-morning.
Nicole Ryan's mother told authorities she had last seen her daughter inside her bedroom about 1 a.m., Los Angeles police Capt. Daryl Russell told KTTV. When the mother checked on her daughter about two hours later, Nicole was gone.
"After searching the house and realizing she was nowhere in the house, she called the Police Department," Russell told the television station.
