Family, friends thankful after 11 year old Mo. girl is found

Maria Huber Maria Huber
FRANKLIN COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

An 11 year old from Franklin County, Missouri, was discovered safely after an 8 hour search.

It was a situation where heartbreak turned to joy for about 100 friends, family, and neighbors searching for young Maria Huber.

It all started around 6 in the morning Thursday when her parents noticed she was missing from her Franklin County, Mo. home.

When rescuers first found Maria in a dry creek bed, she had no pulse, they thought she was dead.

But moments later, some feel they witnessed a miracle.

Suddenly, she moved.  That's when a neighbor, an ER doctor, ran over and revived her.

Authorities believe hypothermia had started to set in, and that's why they couldn't find a pulse.

According to her parents, Maria went to bed around 9. When they realized she was gone they noticed her alarm clock was set for 2 a.m.

Investigators say it looks like she may have run away.

Authorities say Huber was talking as she was transported to the hospital.

Her parents told police she was upset about something that happened at school Wednesday.

Still, the most important thing for everyone is they're just thankful 11 year old Maria Huber is alive.
