Two teenage girls from San Ramon, Calif., who were reported missing since last week are safe and deemed to be “runaways,” according to the police.
A tweet by San Ramon police Sunday night at 9:16 said, “We are happy to report that both Ruby and Mina were located within the past hour through a coordinated effort between a community member and our Investigations Division. Both girls are in good health and were reunited with their families.”
Earlier in the day on Sunday, the police issued a statement saying “Evidence was located indicated the juveniles had planned to run away … The San Ramon Police Department is working with the girls’ families to find them and bring them home safely.”
The police also said that Marybel “Ruby” Gonzales, 16, and Aaminah “Mina” Khan, 14, were “sighted and communicating with other local youths via social media.”
When the parents reported the missing children on March 16, the police launched a search to find the girls even though the initial clues indicated that the two students of Dougherty Valley High School, planned to run away from home.
