7-year-old girl found safe after she was taken by her father in Aurora

There were no details released about where she was found.

AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department said a 7-year-old girl who was taken by her father from her mother’s home, has been found and is safe.

That’s according to a Facebook post from the Aurora Police Department, which said there is now a warrant for 55-year-old Lee Ellis White’s arrest since taking the girl was a violation of a protection order. 

Aurora Police said Lee is not yet in custody but not say why.

The protection order against White was not related to his daughter and stemmed from a prior criminal case, police said.

According to the Colorado Department of Corrections records, White is on parole for a case out of Arapahoe County.
