Leonardo DiCaprio’s missing niece has reportedly been found by authorities.

The six-year-old daughter of the actor’s brother Adam Farrar was listed missing by the US Department of Justice.

But according to RadarOnline, authorities have found the young girl, Normandie Farrar, unharmed.

“I am happy to confirm that this child has in fact been found,” L.A. County Department of Child and Family Services spokesperson Neil Zanville told the website.

“It’s great news. Beyond that, I can’t really say much more. It’s always a little delicate as our department is prohibited by state rules from disclosing case-specific information.”

“I can confirm for you that this child is a dependent of our juvenile court,” he continued. “She was abducted on July 31, 2013.”

According to Radar, the young girl has been “on the run” with her parents.

The outlet reported earlier this week Leo’s stepbrother Adam was taken into custody in Texas last Friday on two outstanding misdemeanor warrants issued out of Los Angeles County on charges of “possession of a dangerous drug and theft”.

Normandie’s mother, Adam’s girlfriend Charity Moore, was reportedly arrested just five days prior, booked “a parent contributing to the child’s nonattendance at school”.

Adam appeared in TV series Galactica 1980, which is thought to have fuelled Leo’s interest in acting.

Apparently his run-ins with the law has caused a rift between them.

“They were brothers and best friends rolled into one. Adam was Leo’s hero too and very influential in his early years,” a friend previously told UK publication The Sun.

“But in recent years it has become hard for Leo to maintain their relationship.”

Adam and Charity’s cases are ongoing.
