The body of a missing 9-year-old autistic girl from San Francisco was found in Cache Creek near her family’s Clearlake vacation home late Wednesday morning, police said.
Clearlake police Sgt. Nick Bassett said Mikaela Renee Lynch was found in the creek within the search area near her home shortly before 11:30 a.m.
She disappeared from the yard of the family’s home at 15197 Harbor Drive around 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
A brief video taken by a resident’s security camera showed the girl running north on Harbor Drive around 1:30 p.m. Sunday, without shoes or clothing.
Searchers had scoured the area for the girl since she disappeared.
