Prompt action by a missing girl’s family, Alaska State Troopers, Homer Police and Homer Volunteer Fire Department firefighters helped prevent a potential tragedy on Thanksgiving evening when a 12-year-old girl, poorly dressed for the elements, ran away from her downtown Homer home. According to a Trooper press release, Trooper Scout Sutton and her K-9 partner Lavi found the child about 6:10 p.m. on Nov. 25. Homer Police Chief Mark Robl said on Tuesday that troopers found the girl on Bishop’s Beach below Crittenden Drive. Tracks in the snow showed the girl had headed toward the beach. Police received a report that the girl had left home about 6 p.m. that night. “She just had a verbal argument with her parents and stormed off,” Robl said “They were concerned about her.”
