Girl, missing since May, reunited with dad

NEED TO KNOW
  • Kele Foust-Carpenter, 5, has been missing since May
  • Girl was featured on In Session's 'Find Our Children' segment

A missing girl from Oregon was found on Wednesday. She was on the other side of the country in Auburndale, Florida.

Kele Foust-Carpenter, 5, went missing in May. Her parents were separated, but shared custody of Kele. When her mother, Naomi, didn't return her to her father, a judge ordered a felony kidnapping warrant for Naomi's arrest.

Someone spotted Kele after seeing her story on In Session's "Find Our Children" segment. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said their call center received a call about Kele's exact location. Authorities in Polk County, Florida, were notified and Naomi was arrested.

This partnership has helped find 32 missing children.

A contact at the National Association for Missing and Exploited Children told us Kele's dad cried tears of joy when he heard the news. He then immediately made arrangements to fly to his daughter.
