AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department located missing 12-year-old Kayla Marie Scott, Friday evening.

Scott was last seen Thursday at 3:30 p.m. at Mendez Middle School. She did not return home that evening and was reported missing to police.

Austin Police detectives said they are concerned about Scott’s well-being. Authorities said the case did not meet the very specific criteria for an Amber Alert, but they are concerned for her whereabouts because of her age.

Police announced they located Scott less than an hour after alerting the public that she was missing.
