Update: Missing developmentally disabled Co. Springs teen found

El Paso County Search and Rescue has found 13-year-old Emily Hermenitt after nearly 8-hours of searching Saturday afternoon and night.

The Colorado Springs Police Department and El Paso County Search and Rescue team searched until around 11 p.m. attempting to locate Hermenitt on the eastern edge of Pulpit Rock Park.  Hermenitt went missing around 3:30 Saturday afternoon in the area of Bay Springs Lane and Canyon Springs Place.  Emily has Asperger's Syndrome and is known to take shelter in sheds, outbuildings, and culverts, according to police.  Emily went missing in December 2012 while hiking with family near the Cog Railway in Manitou Springs.  She was found about 5 hours later in a culvert in Soda Springs Park.  During that case searchers said she had a habit of running off from her parents and hiding, which she considers a game.
