Police search for missing 8 year old

A massive search for 8 year old Nyla Lucas began just after 1 am Friday morning. Police were notified by the girl’s family that she was missing from their home at 49th and Curtis Streets.

After seven hours, Nyla was found safe at a neighbor’s house. Apparently that is where a group of the girl’s classmates gathered for the night and she walked over to join the group.

Omaha police automated a call to neighbor’s homes and the resident there informed police Nyla was safe. Other details of the investigation have not been released.
