ST. LOUIS (KMOX)-The mystery of the three-year-old girl who showed up on a front porch in north St. Louis has been solved.

A few hours after the girl was found by a man on Dodier just east of Grand, her Uncle saw a news report about her.

He called police and identified her as his niece. Police say he was watching the girl while her dad was at work. After seeing the report right after waking up, he noticed his front door open. and the girl gone.

Police believe it was a ‘honest mistake’ but they have handed the information over to juvenile authorities, who will decide whether to seek charges.
