PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Portland teenager, who was considered endangered after she ran away from home, was found safe in Las Vegas.

Authorities said Sunday night the teen had been found. She ran away Aug. 10.

After she ran away, authorities said she could be trying to connect with a man who has prior arrests for sex trafficking.

“Her safety is our top priority,” Det. Chad Opitz with Beaverton PD said. “Any little bit of information will be helpful to us.”

No further details were released.
