US girl, four, missing for two days found safe in woods with dog at her side.

Searchers in eastern Alabama have found a four-year-old girl who was missing for two days in a wooded area.

The girl was in good condition and had a dog at her side when rescuers approached, authorities said.

Authorities said the child, Vadie Sides, disappeared from her babysitter’s sight on Wednesday afternoon while they were walking in a backyard with a hound dog.

Lee county sheriff Jay Jones said searchers found Sides after two days of searching.

Jones said the girl is in good condition despite her ordeal and the hound dog was at her side when she was found.

The station reported that the dog ran away when rescuers approached, but later came home on its own. »
