Two 11-year-old girls who were reported missing after going to a Pacoima park without their parents' permission have been found, police said Friday.

Anna Lopez and Ruby Zapata were found at a friend's house, authorities said. They apparently sneaked out of their homes Thursday night after being told they could not go to nearby Pacoima Park.

They were reporting missing around 2 a.m., said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The two were believed to have left their homes in the 13000 block of Carl Street around 9 p.m.
