Missing girl found after 5 days in alligator-infested swamp

An 11-year-old girl missing for five days in an alligator-infested Florida swamp has been found alive, police told NBC News.

Nadia Bloom, who is thought to have a mild form of autism, was said to be in good shape, according to local news organization WESH.com, but was tired, hungry and covered in mosquito bites.

The Metro Church said Tuesday that one of its members found the child and a spokesperson for her family also confirmed that she had been found alive and well, WESH.com said.

Concern for the girl was growing after police exhausted every possible tip during an all-out search that began last Friday when Nadia disappeared from her Winter Springs neighborhood.
