NORWALK - The Orange Police Department says it spent more than $25,000 in police overtime costs in a four-day search for a 13-year-old girl who ran away from home.

Isabella Oleschuk ran away from home Sunday, March 20 and was found last Wednesday in an abandoned farm stand.

First Selectman James Zeoli says the town will pick up the bill for the search, defending the expenditure by saying there can be no price placed on a child's life.
