April 28, 2016. A nine-year-old girl missing overnight on Frog Lake First Nation was found safe Thursday morning. Elk Point RCMP said the girl was taken to hospital as a precaution but was determined not to have any injuries, frostbite or hypothermia. She said the three dogs that went missing with her the night before had laid beside her throughout the night and kept her warm. The Elk Point RCMP were made aware of the missing girl at 11:14 p.m. Wednesday. She and her three dogs had walked away from her Frog Lake First Nation residence at approximately 6 p.m. Community members searched for her throughout the night. As the RCMP were preparing for a more intensive ground and air search Thursday, the girl walked out of the bush at 7 a.m. and was discovered by a community member and taken home.
