"Brooklyn was not injured and is fine," Police spokesman Lt. Justin Hoyal said, according to the Christian Science Monitor. "She was still wearing the grey T-shirt and black pajama pants. She did not have on shoes, a coat."

Police worried that the missing 13-year-old girl, Brooklyn Gittins, could have frozen to death.

"Investigators believed she could have been a victim of the elements; it's been extremely cold," police said, according to the Associated Press.

Police said it appears that someone harbored the missing 13-year-old, but said they are unsure who.

"We believe she left her home through her bedroom window and was picked up and harbored by a person or persons," the police told the Associated Press.

Police said they will continue to investigate the disappearance of the missing 13-year-old girl.
