An alert was issued Tuesday for Amber Smith, and police and volunteers searched through the night for her near her home in Newaygo County's Barton Township. It's close to Manistee National Forest.

Newaygo County Sheriff's Deputy David Israel rounded a corner on his four-wheeler when he spotted Amber along a track. Israel said she was "standing right there, completely calm."

Amber was taken to Mecosta County Medical Center to be checked for what appeared to be minor scrapes and bruises.



you need a like button :)


I don't know that we need a button, but I absolutely am a push over for a little girl and a happy ending; I like it too. My granddaughter sure knows this to be true and can get grandpa to do just about anything; so very happy that she is home safe.


Good to see a happy ending.
