A missing 5-year-old York City girl was found safe Wednesday, but police say her parents are on the run because they are facing charges

Dream Alicea was located safe Wednesday, according to York City Police, but her parents, Wilma and Jose Alicea, are facing felony charges of child endangerment.  

York City Police Capt. Daniel Lentz said those charges stem from leaving the child alone at home, which caught fire on Friday with the child inside.
