GOOSE CREEK, SC -

New details on the disappearance of a missing Boulder Bluff Elementary student who was later found safe in a nearby resident's backyard. According to the police report, the 10-year-old left the classroom after the teacher didn't call on the student to answer a classroom question. In the report, the teacher stated she didn't pick her due to recent outburst in the classroom.

The report stated the student left the classroom by physically pushing the teacher out of the way, then leaving without permission. The teacher assumed she was heading to the principal's office. After the student left the classroom, a janitor cleaning windows in the cafeteria noticed a child running out a rear door in the 4th grade wing, which is located in the rear of the school.

The report stated the janitor didn't think this was normal and walked out of the cafeteria, spotted the teacher and stated to her the child ran out of the school building. The janitor and teacher attempted to run after the child which they couldn't find.

The missing student, Zoey Reynolds was found near a house in the Boulder Bluff subdivision. Grainger said in an email to News 2. "It has been confirmed via surveillance video that she departed the school campus alone on foot."

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office sent its helicopter to help with the search, and search dogs were brought to the scene. "A reverse 911 service called A Child Is Missing was sent out an alert to phone subscribers in a 3 mile radius of the school," added Grainger.

During the search, residents took to social media to help find the missing 10-year old girl. 

Butch Abrams was watching News 2 post social media updates on its Facebook page. His intuition led him home to check his backyard. "I had intuition, I told my wife let's go home, she's probably in the backyard and she was right there, I seen purple hoodie and I said it's her," said Abrams.

Reynolds was found in Abrams backyard, safe and unharmed. The search was called off and the 10-year-old was reunited with family. A good ending to a tense Wednesday morning.
