Deputies in Central Florida are searching for a missing 12-year-old girl who was last seen by her family when she went to bed Thursday, NBC affiliate WESH reports.
Morgan Girdhari was last seen in the Poinciana area, officials with the Polk County Sheriff's Office say.
Surveillance footage obtained from a Walmart store led officials initially to believe that Girdhari was in the company of an adult man who was not known to her friends or family.
Police now say they believe the girl is traveling alone, and is no longer in the company of that man.
Girdhari has run away from home in the past, but police are growing more and more concerned as the girl has not contacted friends or family since her disappearance.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Polk County Sheriff's Office at (863) 298-6200.
Tipsters can also call Heartland Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-(800) 266-TIPS or log onto Heartland Crime Stoppers.
