A 16-year old Cody girl was found on Friday night after going missing for five days.

Family of Layla Sizemore put out a notice on social media last week alerting the public of her disappearance, engaging a search throughout Cody for her.

"It was amazing seeing the outreach of the effort," her father Fremont McCoy said. "It was quite the blessing."

Sizemore was found by her brother as she was seen on her way to her boyfriends house.

McCody said it is still unknown where she had been.

The search did not come without some malicious forces. 

McCoy said he was contacted by unknown individuals claiming to have Sizemore, demanding a $500 gift card as ransom for her return. He quickly found these claims to be false and a scammer attack.

He said she had ran away from home before but never for nearly this long. 

No foul play was ever suspected in the incident and McCoy said she did bring a bag with her.
