In a statement, the San Marino Police Department said 16-year-old Mira Hu contacted her family at 8:15 p.m. and asked to be picked up from the Los Angeles Public Library, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported. The girl and her parents met with police at 9:20 p.m. to confirm her return, according to the newspaper’s report.

The Arcadia Police Department confirmed to KTLA that Mira had been found, but officials provided no additional information. A call to San Marino police was not immediately returned.

The San Marino High School student on Saturday sent a message to her brother “indicating that she was running away because she was overwhelmed by school” and the SAT, the Arcadia Police Department said in an initial news release.

Mira was dropped off about 7:30 a.m. at Arcadia High School, where she was scheduled to take the college-entrance exam, the release said.

Her parents arrived at the campus to pick her up after the test was administered, but they were unable to find her. The girl sent the message to her brother a short time later, police said.
