SANILAC COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say a Minden City teen reported missing earlier this week has returned home.

Aurora Mierop, 16, was reported missing after she was last seen on Friday, Oct. 20 going to a friend's house in Gagetown. Police said she was a voluntary runaway.

Mierop contacted her mom on Monday, Oct. 23 after police released her photo the media, the sheriff’s office said. She returned home that night.

“It is a relief she is home safe and teens need to realize how serious their decision to runaway is. These cases tie up hours of investigative time, worry parents, family and community involved, and can lead to dangerous situations such as kidnapping and human trafficking,” the sheriff said.

The sheriff’s office thanks the community for bringing forward tips and information on the case.
