PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A 4-year-old girl from Portland who was reported missing with her mother in July, has been found, the Oregon Department of Human Services said August 2.

Noelle Applegate went missing with her mother Shawnna McAvoy on July 15, ODHS said. 

ODHS suspected Applegate and McAvoy were in the Portland metro area. Officials noted the two often spend time around the homeless camp near the New Seasons store at Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard and Southeast 40th Avenue.

ODHS said a small number of children in foster care may be in significant danger when they run away or go missing. ODHS said it does everything it can to find these missing children and ensure their safety. 

“Media alerts will be issued in some circumstances when it is determined necessary,” the agency stated in a press release.
