(WJBK) - The 5-year-old girl who was reported missing from Troy Wednesday afternoon has been found safe. Ariah Bennett was found sleeping in her mother's bed inside her home.

Ariah was reported missing about 5 p.m. Units from the Troy, Michigan State, the Oakland County Sheriff and fire departments were dispatched as well as a K-9 unit. Dozens of people who lived in the area were also searching for the girl.

Ariah's mother, Shawna Volny, tells FOX 2's Taryn Asher the K-9 unit swept her house several times but found no trace of Ariah. Apparently, she was under a pile of blankets.

She was eventually found shortly before 7 p.m.
