An 11-year-old girl who went missing from her west-end Toronto home was found safe Saturday night.
Patricia Pirko, who goes by the name Cintia, was located after police appealed to the public to help find her earlier Saturday.
Pirko went missing close to her home in the Eglinton Ave. West and Keele Street area.
A security surveillance camera caught her walking across a parking lot at 2700 Eglinton Ave. W. with an unknown male, who appeared to be in his teens.
Police said it appeared that Pirko left with the man voluntarily.
In their search, police posted a message on Pirko’s Facebook page asking her to contact them or her family.
