Looking Back at the Discovery of Amber Smith

Posted: Updated:

The 2 1/2 year old is out of the hospital now, after an overnight stay.

The missing girl was found on a trail nearly two miles from her home in Barton Township in northeast Newaygo County.

More than 250 volunteers and 35 organizations scoured the dense woods near her home looking for her.

She was found by a DNR officer standing alone, shoeless and basically unharmed yesterday afternoon.

It was a miraculous ending that police were not expecting after being gone for so long.

But questions still remain on how it was all possible.

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd took a look back at the discovery and has more details.
