girl may have disappeared by choice and there is no evidence of foul
play, according to a release from Boise police. But the girl does not
have her cell phone and friends and family said there was no indication
she was planning to run away. Also, the girl has no history of this type
of behavior and she has not been seen or heard from for 24 hours, police said.

Road about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
She was wearing a black skirt, black
sweatshirt, and black shoes. She was carrying a camouflage backpack, a
black "Steelers" backpack, and a viola. Her family says she may have
had a change of clothing.

BOISE -- Boise Police say a 15-year-old girl missing for nearly two
days was found safe at the home of a friend around 1 p.m. Thursday.

Hanah Hepworth's parents reported her missing on Wednesday morning
when she didn't return home from school on Tuesday. She was last seen
Tuesday afternoon leaving a friend's house on her bicycle.

Police tell us Hanah was found in the area where she was last seen.

"In this case, it had a very happy ending. Shortly after 1 o'clock,
really almost hours after she had last been seen. That's a critical time
period, but she was found," said Boise Police spokeswoman Lynn

Officers went back to the area on Thursday to give things a second
look. That's when they found the girl hiding at a friend's house.

"They went back there, saw her bicycle in the backyard, searched it again and found her safe," said Hightower.

Officers on the scene told NewsChannel 7 one of Hanah's peers told
them where she was hiding. She decided to hide at a friend's home near
Settler and Westminster streets in Boise.

We spoke with the mother of Hanah's friend. She says she had no idea
the girl was hiding in her home. Police came to her home today and she
let them in. When she went into her bedroom, she saw Hanah hiding under
the bed. She says her daughter just wanted to help a friend. The woman
says police cited her with harboring a runaway.

"This case can spark conversations for parents. It's a good
opportunity for parents to ask those 'what if' questions to their kids,"
said Hightower.

Boise Police responded to 266 runaway cases last year. Hightower says
only eight of those cases went unsolved. She hopes Hanah will see how
the community rallied around her.

"Hopefully one of the things that comes out of this is that she will
realize just how many people in this community, including plenty that
she has never met, really, really care about her," said Hightower.

Hanah was questioned by a school resource officer, and it's believed she won't face any legal consequences for running away.

Boise Police would not comment on any other details of the case at this time.
