Young New York Girl Missing Since 2019, Found Alive


A girl who had been missing for two years has been found safe in a secret room under a staircase in Saugerties, New York, police said. Paislee Shultis was reported missing from her Cayuga Heights home in July 2019, when she was 4 years old, according to NBC 4. Police initially suspected the girl’s non-custodial parents, but did not bring charges. New York State Police found the girl over 150 miles away on Monday, acting on a tip that she was being hidden in the Hudson Valley town. After an hour-long search, police found Paislee and her non-custodial mother, Kimberly Cooper, in a secret room under a staircase. Paislee was examined by paramedics and found to be in good health, police said. Cooper and Kirk Shultis Jr., the girl’s non-custodial father, have been charged in the case, along with Shultis’ father. The trio face custodial interference and child endangerment charges. All three have been ordered to stay away from the kidnapped girl.
