ROLESVILLE — Police and first responders worked together to find a missing Rolesville girl on Friday afternoon.

The girl wandered away from her home near Virginia Water Drive and Ashgreen Court around 1 p.m., according to the Rolesville Police Department. She was found safe and unharmed around 3 p.m.

The department reached out to surrounding first responders, including the Zebulon and Wake Forest police departments, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office, Rolesville Fire and Wake County EMS.

Zebulon K-9 Officer Dustin Dobson and his dog, Rino, tracked the child for around 4 miles, according to the Zebulon Police Department.

With their assistance, Rolesville police Sgt. M. Barnes and Detective Sgt. P. Myers found the girl on a trail near her home, the Rolesville Police Department said. The trail is an access path for utilities rather than a greenway, officials said.

Peter Galchenko identified himself as the missing child’s father on Facebook and thanked the agencies for their help in finding his daughter.

“I wanted to reach out and thank our community and how quickly everyone came together to help us in this situation,” Galchenko said. “I want to personally thank Officer Dobson and everyone who responded. You guys are the heroes who never receive the due credit.”

He added that his family is blessed that his daughter was found safe and that the community came together to help.
