The New York Police Department has confirmed that a 14-year-old girl Brooklyn girl who went missing last week has now been found.
According to CNN, Jenna Hospedales, who was seen entering a train station after school on Thursday, Jan. 9 before disappearing, was returned home on Tuesday afternoon in “good condition.” No details have been released on where she was or how she was reunited with her family.
