WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) - West Valley City police say they’re investigating what happened during the night while a 12-year-old special education student was missing.

Deputy police chief Mike Powell says tipsters called Tuesday morning to say they’d found a girl on the side of the road who was confused, cold and looked like the missing Ashley Esquivel.

Police say the girl was taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia, and she was later identified as Esquivel, who’s a student at American Preparatory School.

The girl was reported missing Monday evening when her mother went to pick her up from a school activity and couldn’t find her.

Her case touched off a large search that included door-to-door visits, K-9 units and a helicopter.

Powell says Esquivel was found several miles from the school.
