Girl, 7, missing in Highland Park found safe with family member

A 7-year-old girl who had been missing in Highland Park has been found safe. 

We're told Simone Hunter was found with her father, after disappearing overnight from a home on Avalon Street. 

Simone hadn't been seen since around 11 p.m. Tuesday, when her brother put her to sleep. A Highland Park City official said her 14-year-old brother put her to bed and then he fell asleep on the couch, and then the girl wasn't there in the morning.
