Alford had last been seen Tuesday around 5:30 p.m. jogging along Queenstown Road in Trussville. She was wearing black shorts and a black shirt with “Swag” written across it. Bridges said the department had a runaway report and was investigating.
Bridges said the department felt “very confident” that Alford was not abducted. He said she got in an 18-wheeler with a truck driver bound for Jackson, Miss. Crime Stoppers and the Alabama Bureau of Investigation were notified.
Bridges said the girl was located after local and state agencies were notified.
