The first of the missing 276 Nigerian school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014 has been found and reunited with her family, according to an activist with the Bring Back Our Girls movement in Nigeria.

The girl was found by locals on the edge of Sambisa Forest, in the northeast of the country.

Activists say Amina Ali Nkek was recognized by a local civilian fighter from the Civilian Joint Task Force (JTF), which helps fight Boko Haram, and was taken to her mother, according to the BBC.

More than 200 of the girls abducted from the town of Chibok remain missing. They were taken by militants with the Boko Haram Islamist group.
