An Ohio man decided to take a different route home to see if he could help find a missing girl and it's a good thing he did.

Two-year-old Lana Lowther wandered away from her Lorain, Ohio home around 9 p.m. Wednesday, wearing only pink footie pajamas, no coat and no shoes, in the snow-covered town. 

Andrew Tornabene had seen a Facebook post about Lana and when he left his sister's house overnight he took a different way home, just in case.

"And sure enough, as soon as I made the left onto Missouri from my sister's house, I (saw) her staggering on the corner by a bush and falling in the snow," Tornabene told WJW.

"The way our world is with the psychos today out here, you hope for the best but you never know. But to find her after this much time as little a girl as she is, I don't know, in my opinion, it's a miracle."

He hopped out of the car. As soon as Lana saw Tornabene, he said she put her arms up and grabbed him. 

"I could tell she was really cold so she had to have been out there for a long time because she was shivering when I picked her up. The second I put her in the vehicle, she was just relaxed and started to close her eyes and sit down."

Lana was found 5 hours after she disappeared, 10 blocks from her home, WOIO reported.

Lana's sister saw her walk out of the house, but thought her father was outside working or shoveling.

Lana was taken to an area hospital, but is expected to be OK, WKYC reported.
