A short disappearance was able to cause a stir for a South Side Englewood neighborhood as a 14-year-old girl had gone missing.
The search, fortunately, has come to a close as the girl, Nieja Patterson, was finally found as she showed up for school on Tuesday. A missing person's alert had been issued for the teen Monday.
Nieja had last been seen on February 26, according to a missing person release from Wentworth Area detectives.
Abductions in the South Side area have not been something out of the ordinary, going back in history, so concern and worry would clearly come into play on her whereabouts.
There has been no word of any statements released by the young girl as to where she was for the last four days.
Although missing for a short amount of time, in a country where kids are disappearing everyday and Amber alerts ring non-stop, it's good to know that some of these children actually do come back alive and well.
