Updated 11:30 a.m., May 2: Police say the girl has been located safe and reunited with her family.

Cedar City Police sergeant Clint Pollock told St. George News that Halladay was found as she was walking down a street near her home.

“She said she went for a walk and fell asleep,” Pollock said. “She seemed to be in good health when she was found.”

Pollock said that Gold Cross Ambulance service was on hand, and that medics checked Halladay out before she was allowed to return home.

“The real story here,” Pollock said, “is the amount of people who helped to find this girl. They really united as a community.”

Pollock said that several agencies, including the Iron County Sheriff’s Office, Southern Utah University Aviation, Utah Highway Patrol and Enoch Police Department, among others, responded.

“We are looking for volunteers to help with searching,” police said. “If you’re willing to assist, bring a cell phone and please meet at Canyon View High School to check in at the command post with Deputy Garcia for assignments.”

Halladay was last seen around 8 p.m. Sunday night, walking in the neighborhood of 2530 N. Northfield road, the post said.
