Colerain Township girl found following mother's plea

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A 15-year-old girl has been located after her mother reported her missing from their Colerain Township home Sunday night.

Sara Mahan went missing around 7 p.m. according to Colerain Township Police Chief Mark Denney. But police confirm she was found at a home on Niagra Street in Northbrook Tuesday. Authorities say she ran away from her home.

Her mother, Stacie Mahan spoke to FOX19 NOW Tuesday morning. She said Sara's disappearance came as a shock because the teen had been doing well in school, works part-time and plans to attend Butler Tech-D. Russell Lee Career Center.

Stacie has since filed charges against her daughter. Sara is now being held at the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center, officials say.

Stacie said her daughter has had problems before, but she has always at least let her know her whereabouts.
