2 missing Calif. girls found, 'appeared to be OK'

Two Young Girls Missing After Sleepover


RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A pair of missing girls set off a widespread and well-publicized search across Southern California, but it ended quietly as police found them within blocks of each other and close to their hometown.

Police said they found Raylynn Bolt, 12, and Diana Tourdot, 14, in San Bernardino on Monday night, about 15 miles from Diana's home in Riverside, where they vanished from a sleepover Saturday. They were apparently unharmed.

"From what we could tell, they appeared to be OK," said Lt. Dario Robinson of the San Bernardino Police Department, whose officers found one girl at a city park and the other on a nearby street waiting with a good Samaritan.

"We came across one, and talking to her and piecing it together, she led us to the other one," Robinson said.

Robinson did not know why the girls had come to San Bernardino and didn't know of anyone the pair were seeking or staying with.

The girls were turned over to Riverside detectives, who were interviewing them before they were returned to their parents, Riverside police Sgt. David Amador said in a statement.

Riverside police would also handle any medical examination of the girls, Robinson said.

Family members and police using bloodhounds had searched for the girls after they vanished and concluded they had most likely run away while spending the night at Diana's home. Her mother said she fell asleep around 11 p.m., heard a noise around midnight and woke up at 6:30 a.m., when the girls were gone, Donald Bolt, Raylynn's father, told KABC-TV.

"Unfortunately I think these two girls just got into a little bit of trouble," Bolt said.

He said the family gets along fine, playing video games and doing other activities together.

People had reported seeing the pair together near a city plaza on Sunday, Amador said earlier.

The story told the important part --the girls were found alive and apparently well. If you don't consider that, in and of itself, sufficiently newsworty, then you have a problem.

These girls look older than 12 and 14. Kids like them don't realize the dangers that await them on the streets until it is too late. They were very lucky this time.

These girls do not have adult judgement. It is not necessarily the parent's fault. My oldest son pulled a couple of good ones when he was younger. Not as extreme, but at 16 he and his friends sneaked out of a friend's house to TP a few houses. They were stopped by the police at 2:30 AM with a CASE of TP in the back of a pickup truck. The police told them that TP'ing was considered littering and had a $50 fine associated with it. If they escalated to eggs or anything more it was vandalism and a misdemeanor. The boys continued with their TP'ing and I didn't find out about the event until my son was out of college. The boys are all 30 now and college educated, married homeowners. But I wish the police had called the parents at the time. After we moved several of the boys pulled a bigger prank that they thought was harmless but it cost them $1,500 each to make restitution. If we had a heads up about the first event I don't think the second one would have occurred.

This is laughable. I would put them in jail and let them see what it's like. To put your parents through that torture and you just get to come home like nothing. SHAME ON YOU BOTH.

These girls need to reimburse the police department for all expenses. I don't care if they have to forgo new clothes, cell phone, first car. Public should not have to pay for their stupidity.
