Baltimore (search) police say a missing 12-year-old girl has been found.

City police spokesman Troy Harris says Raven Randal (search) is alive and safe. He had no further details.

The girl was reported missing by her 15-year-old brother, who told police the pair were abducted this week and taken to Gardner, Massachusetts (search).

The teenager told police there that their father had been assaulted in Maryland by people involved in a drug operation and they had been kidnapped — apparently because of a debt owed by the father.

The boy was found in a drug raid in which police arrested four suspects.
