A 12-year-old Chinese girl who went missing from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport has been found with her parents in the New York borough of Queens, authorities said on Friday.
Authorities say Jinjing Ma, the 12-year-old Chinese girl who went missing from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport has been found safe.
Police say the girl was located in the New York City borough of Queens and is in the custody of her parents.
The FBI has taken the lead on the investigation, but it’s not immediately clear what the focus of the probe is and whether an abduction actually occurred.
The 12-year-old girl had arrived at Reagan National on Thursday with a tour group.
Ma was last seen leaving the airport with this woman after changing her clothes.
The pair left the airport in a white Infiniti, driven by an unidentified Asian man.
Police say Ma had been traveling in the U.S. for the past week with a tour group.
Authorities say two individuals approached the girl when her tour group was visiting the World Trade Center in New York.
It’s unclear if that couple was the same as the pair she was last seen leaving with in Washington, but police believe the two events are related.
