In 1996, Romney helped scour New York City for runaway daughter of Bain Capital colleague
By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) ' When Mitt Romney's supporters hear critics describe him as aloof, they point to Romney's decision to lead the search for a missing teenage girl in summer of 1996.

Romney headed the venture capital firm Bain Capital at the time. Romney received a frantic report from a fellow executive who said his 14-year-old daughter had gone missing in New York City.

Romney shut down the firm, opened a "command center" at a hotel near LaGuardia Airport, and enlisted a small army of volunteers to comb the city.

After local televisions picked up the story, the girl was found safe in a New Jersey home.

Romney says the incident ' featured in campaign ads in 2007 and in the current GOP presidential contest ' bolstered his faith in the generosity of people.
