LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police are still asking questions one day after a 4-year-old girl disappeared for six hours, before being found safe almost two hours from where she went missing.
Lyric Rushin was reported missing early Monday morning from the Russell neighborhood.
Family members believe the child walked away from her home near 27th Street and Elliott Avenue.
The child's disappearance led to a search of nearby neighborhoods and vacant homes.
After six hours, she was found unharmed, but police are still having trouble figuring out how she got out of the house and ended up near 41st and Market Streets. Investigators have not ruled out foul play.
Maj. Josh Hasch with LMPD's Major Crimes Division said there was no forced entry to the house, and doctors at the hospital examined the girl and found no medical trauma. All indications are that she simply wandered out of her house in the wee hours of Monday morning, but police have also received reports the child was following a man.
"The investigation is still focusing on trying to find out how she got from point A to point B and what transpired during that time," Hasch said.
Police did not explain what came out of the questioning, but the man did not make any calls to police. Police are also asking for people in the Russell neighborhood to check security cameras between 27th and 41st Streets to see if there is any video of Lyric between 1 a.m. and 9 a.m. Monday.
"Anybody that has a heart for a child should want for any information to come forward to find out how this child got down to 41st and Market Street," said Christopher 2X, executive director of Game Changers. "So they can see what — if anything — they can offer to authorities to try to get a better understanding on her plight."
Hasch said Lyric is back with her mother and family.
