WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- A 14-year-old girl with autism who was missing from Westminster overnight was found in Superior on Monday, the Westminster Police Department said.

The girl's mother dropped her off with her dog at a dog park at West 100th Avenue and Simms Street about 6:20 p.m. Sunday, police said. Alice was told to be home before dark, but she never made it, police said.

The Westminster and Thornton fire departments checked several large bodies of water in the area. Standley Park rangers and Westminster police officers checked the trail systems and Jefferson County Schools security personnel canvassed the neighborhood.

A helicopter from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and a bloodhound from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office were also deployed to help in the search.

On Monday afternoon, police said the girl was found at a hair salon in Superior. A stylist at the Great Clips at 302 Center Drive who cut her hair said Alice walked there.

The girl's dog, Chip, has not been found.
