A missing girl has been found safe after police used fingerprints left on a ransom note to track her down.

Charlotte Sena, 9, disappeared on Saturday while riding her bicycle in New York state, triggering a huge 48-hour search by hundreds of people.

A ransom note was later delivered to the family home, which officials said contained the suspect’s fingerprints.

Police were able to identify him, as the print was on their database linked to a drink-driving incident from 1999.

He was located at a property owned by his mother and arrested.

“After some resistance, the suspect was taken into custody and immediately the little girl was found in a cabinet,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul said at a news conference on Monday night. “She knew she was being rescued. She knew that she was in safe hands.
