A missing Colorado girl has been found safe in Maryland, according to police, but her mother still remains at large. Check back for updates.
Colorado authorities are searching for a 9-year-old who could possibly be in danger.
The Denver Post reports that Sloan Lipnick was last seen on Friday after her mother, Carly Lipnick, 39, took her and headed east on I-70 near Peoria. Authorities spotted the mother’s car, a 2012 White Audi Q5 with CO plate OWO236, on the interstate at around 9 p.m.
Lipnick’s ex-husband reportedly contacted the police after she failed to contact him for several days and didn’t bring Sloan home. Lipnick does not have custody of Sloan and Basalt police said they had a “concern for the safety and welfare” of the child after speaking to a mental health professional about her mother.
“Some of the things Carly was saying and describing were of grave concern,” Basalt police Lt. Aaron Munch said.
