ORLANDO, Fla. – Deputies are expected to provide more details Friday morning after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a missing child alert for a 14-year-old Orlando girl then canceled it Thursday afternoon after the teen was found in Las Vegas.

Lailah Wright had last been seen Wednesday on Willowemac Court wearing a white pullover Adidas sweatshirt, black sweatpants with jeans underneath and carrying a purple backpack.

Officials from the Orange County Sheriff's Office said Wright never made it to school or returned home on Wednesday so there was a concern for her well-being.

Deputies said Wright was found in good health in Las Vegas, but they did not say how she got from Orlando to Nevada.

Sheriff Jerry Demings is  expected to release more information about the case in a news conference scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday.
