RICHMOND, Calif., June 1 (UPI) -- An intensive search for a young California girl ended happily when she was found hiding under a bed in her Richmond home, officials said.

Police and family members spent hours hunting for Amieya Renee Stewart, 4, Friday night, KNBC-TV, Los Angeles, reported.

"She was surrounded by many different items and unfortunately had gone undetected," Lt. Bisa French said.

The girl had disappeared shortly before 5 p.m. during a family gathering and wasn't found until nearly midnight, the TV station said. Even police dogs had missed her.

Her grandmother told KNTV-TV, San Francisco, Amieya likes to hide. The girl's mother told reporters she was sorry to have caused people to worry.
