Missing girl found in swampy woods

Authorities have found a central Florida girl with Asperger syndrome who went missing Friday in swampy woods teeming with alligators.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that 11-year-old Nadia Bloom was located alive this morning. Her sister has said Bloom, who has an autism-related disorder called Asperger syndrome, may have gone into the woods hoping to make a nature video. Police say the girl has some bug bites and is dehydrated, but is "doing well."
