The Wareham Police Department said a 12-year-old girl who ran away from a group home was found unharmed Thursday after she apparently spent the night in the woods.

Police said Lily asked for help from a man who was dropping off his child at a bus stop at about 6:45 a.m.

The resident recognized the girl from news reports and called police.

The girl was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Authorities said Lily ran away from a group home in the Parkwood area of town Wednesday.
