KINGWOOD, Texas -

A missing 10-year-old girl from Kingwood has been found safe.

The girl's father told Local 2 that his daughter, Kylie Sherwood, got off her school bus on Magnolia Point Drive around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday but never made it back home. 

Kylie's father said the fifth grader got in trouble at school and may have run away.
