WARM SPRINGS, OR -- Warm Springs Police say a missing 11-year-old girl and her father were found safe, Wednesday morning. An officer and an FBI agent saw Kaitlyn and Thomas Stofiel hitchhiking along Highway 26, about 25 miles west of Warm Springs. 

 

The pair abandoned their truck a couple weeks ago and told officers they had been camping in an isolated area. They last lived in Portland and had no known ties to Warm Springs. When officers picked up the father and daughter, they were wet, cold and hungry, but otherwise okay. 
 
Kaitlyn is now in protective custody and the Oregon Department of Human Services is working to place her with family. No criminal charges are expected.
