SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (CNN) -- Salt Lake City Police said Wednesday that missing teenager Elizabeth Smart was found alive in a Salt Lake City suburb earlier Wednesday and her uncle told CNN she has been reunited with her family.
"We just believe in miracles and thank God she's alive," Tom Smart told CNN by telephone.
He said the reunion involved her immediate family.
Elizabeth was abducted at gunpoint from her family's 6,600-square-foot Salt Lake City home June 5, 2002, while her parents and four brothers slept. Her younger sister, who was in the bedroom with Elizabeth, witnessed the abduction.
Sandy City Police Sgt. Michelle Burnette said two people called police with a tip that led them to a certain address.
"Two separate women called in and said they thought they had spotted `Emmanuel,"' she said. Emmanuel's real name is Brian David Mitchell. He is a drifter who had once done work on the Smarts' home.
