Helicopter used to search for Solana Beach girl who is found safe

A police helicopter hovered over Solana Beach for about 40 minutes around 9 p.m. Monday in search of an 11-year-old girl who ran from her home.

A patron at a local restaurant ultimately spotted the girl, who ran from home after what an Encinitas Sherriff’s department spokesman called “psychological issues” with her family.

According to an e-mail sent to the Del Mar Times, the helicopter was making announcements over a loudspeaker, telling residents to be on the lookout. The girl was taken home without further incident.
