WYNNE, Ark. -- The search for a missing junior high school student that was separated during a school field trip ended early Wednesday morning after she was found.

Twelve-year-old Iola Danielle Pulley was found in Village Creek State Park almost nine hours after she was first discovered missing. Pulley was participating in a field trip with classmates from Wynne Junior High School.

The sixth-grade honor student was determined to be missing by school officials after roll call was taken on the school bus as the students were leaving the park.

Pulley was found by searchers after they heard her scream. Pulley had some minor scratches when she was found. She was later transported to an area hospital for observation.
