BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Beaverton police said they found a missing 13-year-old girl in California with a boy she'd met online.

Sheyenne Garnett was in the Portland metro area for an extended vacation with a family friend, but she sent a text message to her father in Arizona at 3:10 a.m. Monday.

"Please don't tell anybody, I am running away," the message said.

When she didn't return to the house where she was staying, Beaverton police began looking for Sheyenne. Detectives thought she might be in danger.

A detective working the case discovered that Sheyenne had been talking to a boy in San Jose, California online. The detective contacted the boy's father, who said that Sheyenne was at their home.

San Jose police took Sheyenne into protective custody Monday evening.
