HASTINGS, Fla. – A 14-year-old returned home safely Thursday morning and was reunited with her family after she was reported missing Tuesday afternoon, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office said.

The girl’s mother said she began to worry when her daughter didn’t come home after she was dropped off from the school bus.

The family had offered a $2,000 reward for information on her whereabouts. A spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said the girl returned home Thursday.

Note: Because the girl is no longer missing, News4Jax has removed her name and photograph from this article to respect her family’s privacy.
