NORTHRIDGE, Calif. — The FBI was assisting the Los Angeles Police Department today in the search for a 10-year-old Northridge girl who disappeared from her home during the night.

Nicole Ryan, who lives in the 8000 block of Oakdale Avenue, is White, 4 feet 11 and about 100 pounds, with long red hair.

The girl’s mother told police she saw her daughter in her room about 1 a.m.. But when she returned to the bedroom about 3:30 a.m., the child was gone, so she called police, LAPD Capt. Daryl Russell said.

There were no indications of foul play, and nothing had happened to prompt the child to run away, Russell said.

The FBI was assisting the LAPD in the investigation, said Laura Eimiller of the FBI.
