Metro police have found a four-year-old girl reported missing Friday night.

Police say Victory Qualls was found "safe and unharmed" and will reunite her with her family shortly. Qualls had been missing since around 1 p.m. Friday from the 2000 block of Manchester Lane. Investigators believe her mother's boyfriend, Dewayne Sims, may have taken the girl without permission.

Police say social media attention paid to the girl's disappearance convinced Sims to return the girl. She was located at the home of a mutual friend, who called police.

Detectives have not made an arrest in Victory's disappearance, but will continue to investigate Sims' involvement in the case.
