Deputies: Missing 12-year-old runaway from Seminole has been found

SEMINOLE — A 12-year-old girl who ran away from home Monday afternoon has been found safe, according to Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies.

A family friend from church saw Sylvia P. Ando walking on East Bay Drive near U.S. 19 and picked her up, deputies said. It appeared she may have become lost after she ran away, and she was tired and hungry.

Ando took off after getting into an argument with her parents and was missing overnight, deputies said. The girl is homeschooled and had never run away before, her parents told deputies.

Detectives planned to interview her to retrace her whereabouts during the night.
