Two missing 11-year-old girls from Pacoima found

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.

...and their parents are reimbursing taxpayers for the costs associated in the search, correct?

this is truly a time when the parents should strip them but naked and whip their be hind with an open hand until they could not sit down. and then walk them into the police department in their neighborhood and tell them since you say that we can't discipline them you take them and do what ever you want... they will end up raped and dead one day so remember the name and it won;t be long. also remember this post. the hand writing is clearly on the wall.
