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.



Fantastic news!!!

Isn't it obvious, Ron? For over two months, the police were convinced she was just lost somewhere in the house.

Joking aside, it's good that she's safe.

I hadn't thought of that Ron... but it is logical.

Ms Devine.... if this is a sandwich... then Ron C. gets the mayo spread on him... I don't trust anyone with a knife..

yes..it is good news...very.

Don't worry Ron, I may have a knife, but it's only to 'butter you up'.

I was out with my sister, and when we came home this is the first thing we heard. I was sooo happy to hear this! Thank God!

For a second there I thought the Ron sandwich was going to have a dagwood tagged at the end...

Almost a year gone...thank God she was found.  Now if the tabloids will stay away for awhile...but that's asking too much, isn't it?

shocking, to say the least.

however, if their house is 6,600 sq ft then why are the two girls sharing a bedroom?

what do they do with all of that space?

Truly a miracle of prayer that this child was found alive. Her parents must be beside themselves with joy.

How often does this story end well? By modern day crime standards it's a miracle. In it's wake what will become of those accused of wrongdoing? And wasn't some guy placed in a position which resulted in his death over this?

Yes. A man was under suspicion for the kidnapping but was put in jail because he stole something from the Smart home while he was doing some work there. He died in jail of a blood clot or something.

I am so happy for her and her family.  This was wonderful news. I just pray that every missing child would be reunited with their family.
