The search is over for a missing 8-year-old girl with autism.

Minnetonka police officers say she was found unharmed at a creek near County Road 101 and Creek View Trail around 7:45 p.m. Saturday. The creek is about a half mile away from where she was reported missing.

A couple was walking their dog when they heard noises coming from the woods. They flagged down an officer and ran to a neighbor's house to call for more help.

The girl was reported missing near Clear Springs Elementary School around 6 p.m. Saturday.

The 8-year-old is now home with her family.
