Lyric Franklin, the girl reported missing in Helena, has been located  and is safe, according to the Helena Police Department.

HELENA – The Helena Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a 5-year-old girl named Lyric Franklin.

According to police, Lyric was last seen wearing a pink shirt with “love” on the front and light colored shorts or a skirt.

Lyric also wears pink glasses. Lyric is African American, approximately 3 feet tall and weighs between 40 and 50 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Lyric is suspected to be with her non-custodial father, Kielan Franklin. He is described as an African-American male, 5-feet, 6-inches tall and 250 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

Helena police believe Lyric is in danger as Kielan has a history of past drug abuse and drug distribution.

Kielan has also reportedly used drugs around Lyric and there is a long history of domestic violence between Kielan and Lyric’s mother in which Lyric has been present during the incidents.

If either party is located, contact the Helena Police Department at 406-442-3233 or 911. Reference Helena Police Department case # HP183500.
