CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. - Police say the two missing Clayton Country girls, ages 3 and 11, have been found alive Friday early afternoon. The girls told police that they slept in a doghouse.
Adormi Harris, 11, and Imani Turner, 3, disappeared from a home on Sterling Ridge Drive in Riverdale late Thursday night.
According to police, Adormi's mother put the girls to bed around 11 p.m. Thursday, and then went to bed herself. She woke up around midnight and went to check on her daughter and grand-niece, but the girls were gone.
The mother believes the girls left on their own.
The mother told investigators after searching the home for the girls, she discovered her purse, two cell phones, car keys and a tablet had been taken.
"The caregiver also discovered that a stop stick which had been put in place to secure the door, had been removed and placed to the side," police said in a news release.
Police found the girls leaning against a tree in the front yard of a nearby home. They will be returned to their parents once they have been released from the hospital.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to call 911 or the Clayton County Police Department at 770-477-3550.
