Two young girls, ages 11 and 12, were found safe and returned to their homes after a vehicle being driven by the 11-year-old was stopped in Butts County Aug. 26.

According to a report from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to a home on Blount Road about 7:11 a.m. Thursday morning in reference to a missing 12-year-old female juvenile. Deputies began a search and were informed by a sibling that they had heard their sister talk about meeting another female juvenile off of Weldon Road.

Deputies traveled to the Weldon Road address and found that an 11-year-old female juvenile was missing, along with a family vehicle.

The vehicle was equipped with an anti-theft device that allows the vehicle to be tracked. It was found to be in Butts County, and at approximately 9:37 a.m., Butts County Sheriff’s deputies stopped the vehicle and found the 11-year-old behind the wheel with the missing 12-year-old as her passenger.

Both juvenile were safely returned to their homes.
