Vera, IL (KSDK) - "Not yet explainable," is how Fayette County Illinois Sheriff Aaron Lay describes a weekend search for a missing little girl who turned up in her bedroom more than three hours after she was reported missing.

The parents of the child called authorities around 10:30 Sunday evening to report the 4 year old child was gone.

Investigators did a thorough search of the home and the surrounding area and came up empty handed.  Fayette County got assistance from the Illinois State Police and the Vandalia Police Department during the search.

Sheriff Lay tells NewsChannel 5 around 1:45 a.m. Monday, they returned to the home and found the little girl in the bed in her bedroom.

Lay says there appears to be nothing criminal involved in the puzzling incident, but the investigation is continuing.
