10-year old Alyssa Tourinho who was reported missing Wednesday has been found. ABC 6 News cameras were rolling on Fifth Street in Fall River as the young was reunited with her family.

"It has been a crazy afternoon.  I mean since the minute I found out she was missing and I did not think she was at her friends house, said Maria Faria, Aunt.

Faria says Alyssa usually gets home from school around 3:30, instead Wednesday she went to a friend's house.

"I am just glad that everything turned out okay and she was with a friend.  I am just happy that's all I can say," said Faria.

For about three house Fall River police, the family and friends searched the neighborhood.

"When it's a child it really hurts home and you wanna make sure they get home safely," said neighbor Patricia Bonaca.

Alyssa and her aunt were briefly questioned by police before returning home.
