A 14-year-old who went missing from her family’s home outside San Diego was found by military police inside the barracks at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, authorities said Thursday.

A U.S. Marine was taken into custody for questioning in connection with the incident, though no charges have been filed thus far.

The girl was said to have run away from her grandmother’s house in the Spring Valley area on June 9, though she wasn’t reported missing until June 13.

The 14-year-old was then located nearly three weeks later on June 28 inside Camp Pendleton’s barracks.

NBC San Diego was the first to report on the incident a week later on July 6.

Chuck Palmer told NBC San Diego, referencing a photo of a Marine being led away in handcuffs posted to Instagram.

Single junior Marines are generally assigned to the barracks where most share a room with at least one other Marine. »
