"My thing is not to judge her and blame that she’s lying or not. My whole ordeal is to get her home safe.” - Guardian Angel Lt. Michael Lincoln-McCreight.

Fort Pierce-April 13, 2022: The 15 year old Port St. Lucie girl who went missing Monday was found not by police, but by a member of the Treasure Coast Chapter of the Guardian Angels.

On Monday morning, Guardian Angel Lt. Michael Lincoln-McCreight saw the report of a missing girl on Facebook. He cleared it with the St. Lucie Police Department, and then joined the search for 15 year old Saige Stiles. “I spent from 10:30 to 5, 5:15 looking for her," said Lincoln-McCreight.

Then, about 4:30 pm Monday afternoon, he got a tip that she was seen on Hawthorne and Paar Drive in Port St. Lucie. "So I did 2 laps around and, sure enough, she was walking right beside the road in the grass area.”

Michael rolled down his window and spoke with her. “She was like OK. She asked if she was in trouble and I told her no. She looked like she was very appreciative and she was fully cooperative. She told me her name was Saige. And I had her step over to my vehicle and I called PSL PD to have her transported.”

Saige was un-hurt and, police say, as it turned out she was just playing hooky from school. “She didn’t tell me anything like that," said Lincoln-McCreight. "She just told me some guy was following her. So my thing is not to judge her and blame that she’s lying or not. My whole ordeal is to get her home safe.”

Ned Childress is the Treasure Coast Guardian Angel Chapter Leader.

“When he called me up he said – ‘Hey there’s a missing girl in Port St. Lucie is it all right that I can begin to look for her?’ I said – ‘Michael go find her.’ And within less than 24 hours Michael was calling me saying – ‘I found her.’”
