A 2-year-old girl who was missing for much of Friday afternoon in Madison County has been found safe.

Around 40-50 Madison County crews, K-9 officers, civilians and a state police helicopter combed through hundreds of acres in the Haywood area of northeastern Madison County.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office said 2-year-old Abigail Dennis was last seen at noon and was later found around 3:30 around 1/4 mile from her house.

Authorities say she wandered away from her house and was walking uphill from the home along a footpath. A Rappahannock Electric lineman searching on his ATV found her.  

She was transported to Culpeper Regional Hospital to be checked out, but we're told she just has a few scrapes.

No charges are being considered.
