MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities say a 17-year-old girl who went missing over the weekend was found Wednesday and is safe.
The St. Cloud Police Department said Aaliyah Christine Kazimer of Annandale was seen last Saturday night at an address on County Road 120 in St. Cloud. Her vehicle was found Sunday night in a parking lot at Riverside Park.
After searching for three days, Kazimer was found at about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday at Riverside Park by Munsinger Gardens and is safe.
Based on interviews with Kazimer, police said there is nothing criminal in nature regarding her disappearance.
Kazimer left on her own and chose not to contact her family.
Police said she intentionally left her keys, wallet and phone in her car and was staying with an adult male in St. Cloud. The male reportedly did not know Kazimer was a minor.
Both parties said they didn’t know police had been looking for her.
Police said when she was found she approached a third party to use a cell phone to call her aunt when she was found.
She was taken to a hospital as a precaution, but is stable. Police were investigating her whereabouts since last Saturday.
