It was a frightening couple of hours for a College Station family after a nine-year-old went missing Wednesday night. The child was located a couple hours later.
Authorities arrived at the home on Navarro around 7:15 p.m. after they were told the girl had wandered from the house and not come back.
A search involving police and fire officials from College Station and the Texas A&M University Police Department began shortly there after. Calls were placed to residents within a two-mile radius using Brazos County's reverse 911 system.
A little more than two hours later, the child was located at a friend's home just down the street. She told authorities she had lost track of time.
