NORFOLK, Va. - A 9-year-old girl was previously missing and considered endangered after she was last seen October 29.

On November 8 Norfolk Police said Emiya Copeland was returned safely to the care of her legal guardian and is no longer considered to be a runaway.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children previously reported that missing Copeland, from Norfolk, was considered to be endangered due to her age.
