The search for missing a missing Hinesburg girl has ended on a happy note.    

Hinesburg Police Chief, Frank Koss says Carissa Parent,12, of Hinesburg was found back at her home at around 4:30 p.m. 

Carissa was reported missing around 11 a.m. Tuesday morning.  Police notified the public about her disappearance around four hours later.  According to police they were not concerned that anything suspicious had happened to her.  

Police say a drone and canine search was done to help them find the girl.

"We got a drone out. Not our drone. One of the firefighters has a private drone. We searched the areas with that. Then we went ahead and called state police, protocol. They came out. They brought a k-9 out and the k-9 started to track and pretty much lead right back to the house again," said Koss. 

Vermont State Police and the Hinesburg Fire Department also assisted in the search.
