LANDIS — A missing 13-year-old has returned home, said Landis Interim Police Chief Kevin Young. The girl, Kaylee Leitch, had been missing since late Sunday.

She’d been at her East Ryder Avenue home around 11:30 p.m. when her father said she’d taken a show and went into her bedroom. Her father assumed she’d gone to bed.

Investigators said they believed she’d ran away with someone. The family said there had not been any type of conflicts and they didn’t know why she would’ve run away, according to the chief.

Young said on Thursday that Kaylee went back home on her own.
