MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Myrtle Beach police say a 13-year-old girl who was missing for more than a day after taking the trash out at an area resort has been found safe.

Police sent a message on Twitter on Monday morning saying Jalene Olivia Coward was located. The message says more information will be released later.

Coward disappeared from the Palace Resort around 9 p.m. Saturday while on vacation with her family.

Authorities say Jalene left the room to take the trash to the trash chute and did not return. Police say Jalene and her family were preparing to visit an arcade prior to her disappearance.
