COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC) -

A massive search for a missing 6-year-old girl in Collierville has ended.

The girl, identified as Nakayla Dodridge, was returned home shortly after 9 p.m.

Police said Nakayla was at a friend's house the whole time. When the friend's parents realized the search was on, they dropped her back off.

Nakayla was missing since 4:30 p.m. from the area of Kelsey Woods, near Johnson Park.

Police said Nakayla was last seen near her home after school.

Search dogs were called in to help search.

Police even made calls to residents in the area to alert them of the missing girl.

Dozens of volunteers came in to search Johnson Park and surrounding neighborhoods of Nakayla's home.

"We all play here and do a lot of activities here, so just wanted to see what's up and help out," Seth Quarter, volunteer, said.
