Missing Girl Found by Man 'Praying in Tongues'

A Florida girl who went missing last Friday was found alive yesterday by a man who attends her family's former church.

In an early version of the Orlando Sentinelstory, a pastor's wife said that the man who found Bloom had been praying in tongues. About three dozen members of Metro Church in Winter Springs had searched for the girl, who was lost in a wooded swampland. CNN reports that King and Nadia's family at one time attended Metro Church but they did not know one another.

In an ABC story, James King credits God with finding the 11-year-old girl who has an autism-related disorder called Asperger's syndrome.

"He [God] directed my path," volunteer searcher James King told "Good Morning America" today. "When you're in a swamp, there's no good-looking way. He led me directly to her. ... I would be praying and calling out Scriptures and at one point I called out, 'Nadia,' and I heard, 'What?'

"That's a huge swamp. It was strictly the Lord. There was no mathematical calculations. It was the Holy Spirit directing me to where he knew she was the whole time," he said.
