UPDATE: A Stanislaus County sheriff’s detective on Tuesday confirmed that a 17-year-old girl who was reported missing last week and had not been seen for a few days, has since returned to her home.
On Friday afternoon, sheriff’s investigators were searching for Janet Fernandez who was last seen on the evening of Aug. 7, when she left her home with an unknown person.
Investigators considered Fernandez to be at risk because of the circumstances surrounding her disappearance, sheriff’s officials said in a Facebook post. They said she voluntarily left her home with the unknown person.
Detective Erich Layton on Tuesday said the girl had since returned home to her family.
