Posted: Updated:

HOOD RIVER, Ore. -- A missing 12-year old girl who Oregon State Police thought might have been in danger, has been found safe in Hood River, Oregon.

Oregon State Police report an alert Hood River County Sheriff's Deputy spotted the pick-up Elizabeth Shambaugh might have been in, parked just off Interstate 84 in Hood River just after 9:30 Wednesday night.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is sending a deputy to Hood River to take the girl until she can be reunited with her family. 

State police say Shambaugh was with a woman who might be from Umatilla.

Investigators will be interviewing this woman to determine if Shambaugh was abducted, or if there was a communication problem that led Shambaugh and the driver to be separated from Shambaugh's father.
