7-year-old Avery Mikayla Sandoval has been found.

After the Guam Police Department dispatched first responders to the area, emergency personnel from the U.S. Air Force eventually located her on the roof of one of the houses in her family’s compound. It wasn’t clear how she got there.

Avery was brought down from the roof and examined by first responders for any injuries. She was determined to be okay.

GPD earlier reported Sandoval missing from her home on Evelyn Perez Road, Chalan Lachance, in Yigo.

A massive search then ensued with GPD, Guam Fire Department, and other first responders helping to scour the whole neighborhood and the surrounding jungle area.

Avery was found and rescued shortly after 9 pm Monday night.
