• Deputies: 14-year-old girl reported missing, found safe in Sumter County


    SUMTER COUNTY, Fla. - Sumter County deputies said they have found the 14-year-old girl that was reported missing Wednesday night.

    Deputies were looking for Karla Giovanni Carvjal after she was last seen getting off a school bus and walking down a dirt road.

    Deputies said they “pinged” Karla’s cellphone in the area of county roads 230 and 205C in Wildwood.  And she was found safe shortly after.

    Karla is currently being interviewed by law enforcement.

    Deputies originally were looking for a black Chevrolet pickup truck that they believed was involved. But, they said neighbors reported the vehicle because they didn’t recognize it and police cleared the vehicle from being involved.

    No further details have been released.
