Muskego - Police said last week that there was no threat to the public in connection with the disappearance of a 15-year-old Muskego girl whom authorities feared was abducted Thursday morning, Nov. 3, after going for a run.
The girl, Alexa Endisch, was found shortly before noon that morning in Kurth Park off Woods Road in Muskego. She was not hurt, police said Monday.
She was located after Muskego police received a call from a citizen about 11:35 a.m. reporting having seen her in the park. The girl was then reunited with her family.
After officers spoke with Alexa, they determined that postings in social media reporting that Alexa was abducted were incorrect.
The report of the missing teen triggered a full-blown response by authorities. Not only were Muskego police involved, but the Muskego Public Works Department, the Tess Corners Fire Department, the Suburban Critical Incident Team,the Waukesha Police Department, the New Berlin K-9 and several other agencies. Citizens also joined the search.
Fears were aroused when Alexa failed to return home after leaving a note that she was going for a run. Her parents called police shortly before 8 a.m. when they failed to find Alexa on her normal running route.
Being gone so long without telling her parents where she was is out of character for Alexa, her parents told police.
