Prince George's 13-Year-Old Girls Found After Being Missing for 10 Days

Prince George's County police say they have located two 13-year-old girls who were missing for 10 days.

Jeniah Clayton-Bowman and Alaiya Maria Robinson were found safe, Prince George's County Police announced early Friday.

The girls were found after a citizen saw them walking around after midnight and called the parents and guardian, News4's Paul Wagner has learned.

They had been last seen by their families on March 7 when they went to middle school in Forestville that morning.

Police said the two girls spent three nights at a friend's house and were spotted at other locations after that.

But the fact that they hadn't come home had police and their families worried.

“I’m concerned; I have had some not-so-good days, you know," Jeniah's aunt Jalesa Clayton said while the girls were missing. "Sitting by the phone, by the door; she has her own key, and I have been leaving the latch off so she can walk right in."

Clayton has full custody of her niece. She said the 13-year-old got into some trouble at school and was suspended. She thinks Jeniah might think she's in more trouble than she is.

“I think they made a dumb decision, but I do feel that they need us right now to come get them from wherever they are," she said.

Police had classified their disappearance as a critical missing case due to the length of time they were away from home.
