She was finally spotted Wednesday night in a field not far from Mandalay Bay, near where the gunman killed 58 people.

"We saw her run by as we were talking, and I had jumped over the fence, just kind of running from people, but as soon as I was calling her, I kneeled down, and she ran straight to me and jumped into my arms," Needham said.
