Police and Washington County Emergency Management volunteers began a search mid-day Sunday for a 14 year-old Bartlesville girl reported missing.  While authorities are holding the identity of the girl as confidential at this time, authorities report that she was recovered from Claremore. 

The investigation centered on a Facebook post made about 6 o'clock Sunday morning with her picture in a wooded area.  The girl had something that looked like blood and mud on her.  The girl was reported missing around 11 o'clock in the morning.  Analysis of the photo appeared to indicate it was an old picture because there was too much light.  Sunrise didn't occur until around 6:40.

The girl was reportedly back with her family by 7 o'clock Sunday night.  There was social media traffic on both Facebook and Twitter regarding volunteers who went out searching for the girl after police had called off the search effort.
