CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A young girl who was reported missing last week was found Saturday at a fast food restaurant in Charlotte.

According to WBTV, the preteen victim was abducted, driven around for hours, and then held at a hotel by multiple suspects.

The suspects “grabbed” the girl “near her home’ on Thursday afternoon, WBTV reports.

The station reports a security guard spotted the girl in an uptown Burger King near the Transit Center.

“He approached the girl and asked if she was in fact the missing girl,” WBTV reports.

After the security guard contacted Charlotte police, officers notified the victim’s family, the station reports.

Investigators are still working to collect information.
