A TWO-YEAR-OLD girl walking her dog with her father vanished in Gil Garci’a (Avila) forest last night (Monday) but has been safely retured to her family after a major search.
Search parties from the Guardia Civil, mountain rescue, Civil Protection and local volunteers were sent out after the alarm was raised and a helicopter unit was made ready to go out at first light.
Footprints which were believed to be the little girls were followed and after seven hours of searching an officer heard a dog growling and discovered her under some bushes cuddled up to the dog.
Apart from a few scratches she was unhurt and an emotional reunion with her parents took place.
