A 6-year-old-girl who went missing Tuesday has been found.

Sheneka Cole was found sleeping on a couch at a neighbor's home in the area of 61st and Eberhart -- right around the corner from her own house.

Sheneka was taken home first, and then Police had her transported to the hospital. Her family and friends say she appears to be fine.

"During the neighborhood search through the alleys and through the aprtments we walked upon a young girl and a woman and they inquired what we was looking for," said family friend Lee Key. "The young child knew exactly what we was looking for...they didn't say nothing, they just lead us up into the apartment building."

Authorities were initially puzzled as to why the neighbors did not notify the police. The neighbors claim they do not have a TV or a radio, so did not know the girl was missing. 

Sheneka apparently entered the home during a shooting Tuesday evening, and the neighbors claim they had no clue where Sheneka lived.

Sheneka had last been seen playing in a park at 518 E. 60th St. on Tuesday night. She was wearing a lime green Rocawear shirt and pink jeans.

Earlier Wednesday, a Police Marine unit was searching ponds near her last known location. Police had also secured a canine unit, and had planned to have Police recruits do a grid search of the park.
