12-year-old Peachtree Corners girl was runaway

PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. -- A 12-year-old girl missing for most of Monday has returned home.

Kelsie Lee had been reported missing around 8:45 a.m. after her mother said that she had left home to drive her son to school. When the mother returned home, another daughter told her mom that Kelsie took out the garbage and never returned.

After a search that lasted throughout the day and into the night, Jennifer Aliff said that she saw Kelsie walking down West Jones Bridge.

"I said, 'Are you Kelsie?' and she said, 'Yes,'" said Aliff. "And I said, 'Sweetheart, everybody's looking for you. Can I take you home?' She's like, 'Please. I'm just so scared.'"

Kelsi Lee had been missing much of the day Monday, and was found safe. She has returned home. 11Alive

Investigators said that this case did not fit the criteria to issue a Levi's Call. In order for a Levi's Call to be activated, police must believe that an abduction occurred, or must have reason to believe that the child is in imminent danger or injured.
