Authorities say they have found an 8-year-old girl reported missing.

There was a miscommunication about who was picking up Hailey Gawatz from school, authorities said.

Police had asked for the public's help in finding Hailey who was last seen at Hosea Elementary School just after 3 p.m. Monday.

St. Joseph police issued the alert about 6:30 p.m. but did not include a picture in their postings. It wasn't immediately clear whether they have asked the Missouri Highway Patrol to issue an Amber Alert.

Troopers say they have not issued an Amber Alert.

Police said at 6:45 p.m. that they found the child.
