The Moorhead Police Department said Thursday morning that three missing teen runaways all returned home safely.

Police had asked for the public's help finding the girls Wednesday night, saying they were all together and deactivated some social media. Police also said the teens weren't communicating with their parents.


Jalissia Marie-Love Escobedo, pictured below, returned home late Wednesday night, according to police.

The other two girls, Thauna Gayetaye and Thabetta Gayetaye, pictured above, returned home Thursday morning, police said.

The department thanked the public for their help in disseminating the information about these runaways and helping bring the incident to a safe conclusion.
