Leah J. Karns had been missing since Thursday, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. Her mother reported the teen left home after an argument and worried she was at risk.
The sheriff’s office said Karns’ mother had gotten tips that the 15-year-old was seen at the Spokane Valley mall and in downtown Spokane asking for money, “hanging around with different adults.”
Deputies thanked the pubic for their tips.
