A 10-year-old girl who went missing from her Rosemead school more than a week ago has been found safe, authorities announced Saturday.

Cynthia Wheeler-Villanueva, who was last seen leaving school in the 7500 block of Emerson Place at 12:30 p.m., Jan. 9, ran away and was not thought to have been kidnapped or in any immediate danger, authorities said.

She was found safe and in good condition Friday in San Pedro, where detectives said she used to live and go to school.

Additional details about the girl’s return were not available.
