PORTLAND, Ore. – A missing 14-year-old girl who police feared was in danger was found safe Sunday afternoon.

Portland police found Ebony Peters in Southwest Portland, according to Sgt. David Thompson with the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

She was not hurt. Thompson did not release further details.

Peters was last seen on Jan. 11 leaving her mother’s Aloha house to go to the library supposedly with a trusted friend, but that friend never went to the library.

Her mother, Roxann Dentler, said her daughter is developmentally delayed, has adolescent bipolar and that she's a five-year-old emotionally.

Her family and friends passed out flyers trying to find Peters, especially after someone spotted her with older men on the MAX.

Police said Peters will soon be reunited with her mother.

This story will be updated with more information as we learn it.
