Police locate missing 12-year-old Atlanta girl

- According to the Atlanta Police Department, Jimenes-Vasquez was found uninjured and in good health.

Atlanta police said Arasely Jimenes-Vasquez was last seen Saturday around 10 p.m. in the 2700 block of Dearwood Drive in southwest Atlanta. Her family discovered her missing when they woke up Sunday morning.

Investigators initially believed she was in the company of Armando Aquilar, a family friend. The two had knows each other for a year, according to police.

"They are acquaintances," an Atlanta Police spokesperson said in a press conference before Jimenes-Vasquez was found. "They're not family members, even though she may say he is her uncle."

After going missing Monday night, Atlanta police were able to locate 12-year-old Arasely Jimenes-Vasquez Wednesday afternoon.

A Levi’s Call, Georgia’s Amber Alert System, was activated by the Atlanta Police Department for Jimenes-Vasquez, who they believed to be in the company of an older man.

The circumstances surrounding her disappearance were not immediately released.

"We suspect she left on her own, based on a message sent to her aunt," said the APD spokeperson. "But we are not certain that that is the case, and we can not verify that through a text message."
