Two California girls missing from a sleepover over the weekend in Riverside were located unharmed some 15 miles away in San Bernardino. They apparently ran away.

Riverside police had believed the two girls, Raylynn Bolt 12, and Diana Tourdot, 14, had planned to run away, according to KTLA-TV. Authorities began an extensive search for the girls that initially was fruitless.

Authorities told The Associated Press that one of the girls was found at a San Bernardino city park late Monday and the other on a nearby street.

"We came across one, and talking to her and piecing it together, she led us to the other one," San Bernardino police Lt. Dario Robinson told the AP.

Police said the second girl was waiting with a good Samaritan when officers arrived.

Robinson said he was not aware of why or how the girls traveled to San Bernardino and if they knew or stayed with anyone in the city.

San Bernardino police turned the pair over to Riverside police, where they were interviewed and then released to their parents, Riverside police Sgt. David Amador said in a statement.

KABC-TV reported that the girls were at Tourdot's home on Saturday when they went missing. Tourdot's mother told the KABC-TV she heard a noise after falling asleep about midnight but did not investigate. She said when she checked on the girls about 6:30 a.m., they were gone.

Donald Bolt, Raylynn's father, told KABC-TV that his daughter's action was uncharacteristic of her. He said the girls had spent a lot of time together over the last two weeks.

"We just all enjoy every day, I mean, we get along, we look forward to the next video games, the next PewDiePie on YouTube, you know," Donald Bolt said. "Unfortunately, I think these two girls just got into a little bit of trouble."

Donald Bolt said the two girls had spent a lot of time together over the past six weeks. Raylynn had been hanging out with Diana for about six weeks.

Family and friends had joined the search with law enforcement for them, including the use of police bloodhounds.

After its initial investigation, Riverside Police concluded Monday that the girls had run away were not the victims of foul play, according to KABC-TV.
