Missing girl from Orange back home

ORANGE - A 13-year old girl from Orange whose disappearance sparked a massive manhunt was returned home this morning.

Police say Isabella Oleschuk was found hiding yesterday in an abandoned farm stand near Indian River Road.

Her father says she ran away because of stress at school, but says that it was not related to bullying.

Roman Oleschuk says he's grateful for everyone's help and he's thrilled his daughter is back home.

Amity Regional Schools Superintendent Dr. John Brady says the girl?s family is keeping Isabella home for the next few days, adding that they will make her transition back to school as smooth as possible.
