    Three girls who were missing since Wednesday have turned themselves into police.

    Friends Nathaly Flores, Allison Marroquin and Jocelyn Perdomo -- ages 13 and 14 -- were last seen on the morning of Jan. 6, when they were dropped off at Smarts Mill Middle School. None of the girls attended school that day.

    The three teens were early Tuesday morning near the Safeway at Countryside Shopping in Sterling, Va. They walked over to a deputy sitting in his cruiser and turned themselves in at about 1 a.m.

    They were transported to Leesburg headquarters where police conducted interviews. Police said they were not harmed, and that there was no suspicion of foul play or of the girls being held against their will.

    Last Wednesday morning, a security camera caught the girls standing in front of their school, apparently text messaging, but none entered the school. Later that morning, strange phone calls placed to the school said they were sick and wouldn't be in that day, NBC4's Pat Collins reported.

    Police were investigating the disappearances as runaways.

    Allison's father didn't buy the runaway story. He told NBC4's Pat Collins he believed gang activity was behind the girls' disappearance.
