Evacuate by bike?

DELAND, Fla. -- An 8-year-old DeLand girl reported missing was found by police riding her bike as fast as she could to leave the state of Florida, fearing a massive Hurricane Dean was on its way.

The parents of Heather Snoke reported the girl missing Wednesday night after last seeing her riding on her bike, according to a newspaper report.

Volusia County sheriff's deputies searching by helicopter eventually spotted Heather about a mile from home on East Plymouth Avenue, still on her bike.

She told officers that the recent news about hurricanes had scared her, and she wanted to ride her bike back home.

"It is amusing but at the same time sad," DeLand police Deputy Chief Randel Henderson said.

The girl was transported back to her home and was not injured.

No charges are pending, Henderson said. "There was no abuse. There was no neglect. It's a happy story. We're just so excited we were able to find this little lady."

The family recently moved to Florida from Columbus, Ohio, and her parents said she hasn't made any new friends yet, an Associated Press report said.
