13-Year-Old Girl Reported Missing from Dayville Found Safe

A 13-year-old girl who had been missing from Dayville since Sunday has been found and she is safe, according to state police.

Abaynesh "Abby" May was found in an abandoned church on Ballouville Road after state police received information from a concerned citizen.

"Fortunately, with the help of the community, Troopers were able to locate Abby alive and well in an abandoned church approximately one mile from her residence," a news release from state police says. 

Abby jumped out of a window sometime between 8 p.m. Saturday and 4 a.m. Sunday and was believed to have gotten into an unknown vehicle, according to her dad.

May’s father said his daughter left a note when she left, but they were not sure the circumstances or where she was planning to go.

State police said Abby was immediately evacuated as a precautionary measure and is being reunited with her family.
