A 10-year-old girl from Maple Heights who was reported missing on Saturday has been found safe, police said. 

Police told newsnet5's Meg Shaw that Samira Lucas was found near home wandering at around 10:45 a.m. on Sunday and appears to be unharmed.

The girl was reported missing from the Summit Avenue at around 1:45 p.m. on Saturday.

According to authorities, her parents had picked her up from a friend's house because she was having "disciplinary issues." After they got home and parked the car in their driveway on Summit Avenue, police said the girl jumped out of the car and ran. She was not wearing any shoes or a coat. 

An endangered missing child advisory was issued for Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit counties on Sunday as the child was believed to be in danger. The advisory has been canceled. 

Police said a "full scale" search by multiple agencies was initiated to find the girl, including Maple Heights Police Department, Southeast Area Law Enforcement, the Child Abduction Response Team, K-9 Unit and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation. Personnel from the Maple Heights City School District also assisted.

The girl is safe and being treated for exposure issues, officials said.
