A 12-year-old girl who ran away from a group home in Calimesa was found safe, authorities reported Thursday evening.

Genevieve “Lexi” Brinson went missing on May 12, and law enforcement personnel with the Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force took over the investigation about a week later. The location of the group home was not immediately available.

Witnesses reported seeing a girl matching her description in Indio in August, and in July some thought they spotted her in a commercial area in the 72000 block of Varner Road, near Thousand Palms, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Jose Tijerina said.

She was located safe, authorities announced Thursday night, but details were not released.
