March 23, 2012
A 13-year-old girl who ran away last weekend has been found safe and returned home to her father in Paso Robles.
Paso Robles police working in conjunction with Kern County Sheriff’s deputies discovered Siera Tharp in Ridgecrest at the home of a family friend. On March 17, the teen left her father Christopher Tharp a letter saying she was running away because of family disagreements.
Police suspected the teen had headed to her mother’s home in Inyokern, a town near Ridgecrest. Her father has full legal custody.
Siera was found Thursday at about 630 p.m.
