DETROIT (WWJ) - Detroit police say a teenage girl who disappeared after school last week has been found. 

Police and family had asked for tip from the public to help find Dream Childress, who'd last been seen the afternoon of Wednesday, December 12. 

Her stepfather dropped her off at school at around 8 a.m. but when he went to pick her up afterwords, she was nowhere to be found. The school staff reported that Childress attended all of her classes then left at the end of the day. 

Police later sent an update saying the teen was back home was was doing well, thanking the public for their assistance. No further details were released. 

This was not the first time Childress went missing. Last May, when she was 14 years old, it was reported that she went missing in the middle of the night while in the care of her grandmother. It's unclear where she went that time, or how long she was gone.
