The 11-year-old Fresno girl who didn’t return home from school on Thursday has been found, Fresno police reported Saturday.
Fresno police posted on Facebook about 6 p.m. Saturday that Celeste Alvarez had been located. An officer said she was found by her mother early Saturday and then was immediately taken to Community Regional Medical Center as a precaution.
Police said Celeste attended Yokomi Elementary School on Thursday, but never got on the FAX bus with her sister to get home, as she usually does. Celeste’s mother had been visiting her own mother in the hospital and did not realize Celeste was missing until Friday morning. Celeste’s mother searched for her, then notified police that evening when she wasn’t found, police said.
