This is part of an article in the Syracuse Post-Standard, dated 1/13/50:

MOUNT VERNON.â€"A 12-year-old girl missing from her Yonkers home for a week was found unharmed yesterday in the Biltmore theater here. Police said the girl, Josephine Leach, had run away from home after a quarrel with her mother, although fear had been expressed earlier that she might have been abducted.

Detectives came upon the girl after searching all theaters in a large area of Mount Vernon, a New York suburb, on a tip that she had been seen in another movie house some distance away. Only a few hours before, the girl’s trail was picked up when a minister and his wife found she had been in their apartment, in a mixed white and colored section of Mount Vernon, while they were absent earlier in the day.
