Los Angeles police say a 10-year-old girl who was reported missing from her home overnight has been located.

Sgt. Rudy Lopez says Nicole Ryan was apparently spotted by someone who recognized her from information that had been publicized and contacted the Police Department.

The girl with distinctive long red hair was found at midafternoon outside a Starbucks store about six miles from her home in the Northridge area of Los Angeles.

Nicole's parents reported her missing from home before dawn Wednesday.
