A missing Moraga middle school student was returned home safely to her family on Thursday night.
Moraga police said Linda Sergott was located about 7:30 p.m.
Moraga police issued a statement Thursday night saying the 12-year-old girl was back home in good health.
Police thanked the community for its "outpouring of support." No other details were released.
Volunteers had spread out across Lamorinda on Thursday afternoon to help in the search for Sergott, who apparently left home overnight Wednesday with a yellow and gray backpack and a green sleeping bag.
She also took some cash and food with her, according to police, but left her cell phone at home.
She was described as 5 feet tall, 90 pounds with blue eyes and long blonde hair and believed to be wearing jeans and dark gray athletic shoes.
She had been last seen about 9 p.m. Wednesday when she went to bed at her home on Corliss Drive where she lives with her mother, father and three older siblings.
Sergott's parents discovered their daughter missing at 6 a.m. Thursday, according to neighbors.
Police and neighbors said Sergott did not leave any messages or anything on her computer that would indicate she was meeting up with somebody.
Beverly Harper, a neighbor of the family, said Sergott has not contacted any of her friends either.
Harper said the UPS store in Moraga has printed up fliers free of charge for the community to pass out. Harper said volunteers were distributing the fliers at various locations, including the Orinda BART station.
Another neighbor, Merrylee Landau, coordinated search parties. She said volunteers scoured places like Rancho Laguna Park, Moraga Commons and the pear orchards.
