Missing 11-Year-Old Girl Returns Home

SAN DIEGO -- An 11-year-old girl reported missing by her mother Friday returned home on her own.

Police searched the City Heights area for several hours after Amber Ortiz's mother told them that the girl had disappeared from the family's home in the 4100 block of 44th Street sometime Thursday night or Friday morning. The mother said she works nights and discovered that Amber was missing when she came home Friday morning.

Police scaled back their search when they learned that the girl may have run away. At one point, they interviewed the girl's 15-year-old boyfriend as part of the investigation.

Police said Ortiz returned home Friday evening. It was not immediately known why she left or where she went.

Thank Goodness a Happy Ending.

MILWAUKEE -- The mother of one of two boys missing for almost a month said Saturday that their bodies had been recovered from a park lagoon near where they disappeared.

Purvis Virginia Parker, 11, and Quadrevion Henning, 12, were last seen on the afternoon of March 19 when they asked Henning's grandfather if they could play basketball at the nearby park.

The bodies were found in the park lagoon on Friday.

"Yes, it's my son," said Angela Virginia, who said she identified Purvis from a photo that police showed her.

She said Quadrevion was identified by his family.
