Both girl and dog were found safe on Monday night over 24 hours after going missing. Abigail was barefoot for the entirety of her ordeal, but was discovered unharmed.

The Sheriff’s Department have not released details of how Abigail was found, but the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network declared that the mission to her find her had ended in success.

It should go without saying that the girl’s disappearance prompted a period of agony for her worry-stricken family, but their prayers were answered yesterday evening.

Thank God this little girl was found safe and sound. I can only imagine how terrified her parents must have been.
