EL PASO — A missing a 11-year-old girl from Fort Worth, Texas was found in New Mexico Sunday.
The girl, Jessica Smith, was found safe with her mother, Kimberly Smith, in Northern New Mexico near Taos.
New Mexico State Police found the two in their vehicle tired and hungry at about 1:00p.m. Sunday.

The mother reportedly suffers from mental illness. She was taken into custody and is awaiting extradition to Fort Worth.
