UPDATE: Gabriella Roselynn Vitale was located by authorities Tuesday afternoon. She is reported alive. She walked up to a house within the search area Tuesday morning -- not wearing a diaper or shoes, but was otherwise okay.

Michigan State police said she was in good condition and good spirits "for a little girl who had been out in the woods all night." 

She was found less than a half a mile west of where she went missing. 


Michigan State Police and the Oscoda County Sheriff's Office are looking for a 2-year-old girl who wandered away from a camp site on Reber Road west of M-33 in Comins Township. 

Gabriella Roselynn Vitale was reported missing on Monday. 

Vitale and her family are from the Monroe area. The family said they were getting ready to leave Monday morning when they lost track of their toddler. 

MSP has used canine teams, a helicopter and ground search teams as they look for Vitale. She was last seen wearing a pink zip-up coat and pink pants. She is believed to be wearing tennis shows and have a grey t-shirt on. 

Police gave an update Monday afternoon, saying they found the girl's pink jacket a couple hundred yards of where she went missing.
