NORTH OGDEN -- A missing North Ogden girl has been located after she had been gone for three days.
Police reported late Saturday night that family members had located Hope Hathaway at an address in Ogden and she had returned home.
Hathaway, 15, had last been seen at Weber High School, Wednesday, which let out that day at 12:15 p.m. Police believed she was a runaway, since she was last seen with a backpack full of clothes and her medication for Type 1 diabetes, said North Ogden Police Sgt. Dirk Quinney.
"One or two days is usually the norm (for runaways)," Quinney said. Hathaway had reportedly told friends that she was going to catch a bus to Las Vegas, police said.
North Ogden police are also still looking for Alexis Rasmussen, 16, who disappeared three weeks ago. She was last seen the night of Sept. 10 at a friend's house.
Rasmussen also attends Weber High School. Before Hathaway was found, her father Dan said he understands that the two might have hung out before and that his daughter had spoken to Rasmussen sometime before she disappeared.
Rasmussen's mother Dawn Miera said Saturday night she believes the two might have been friends in junior high school. The girls are also friends on
Police said they did not believe that the disappearances of the two girls were connected.
Dan Hathway said his daughter had never run away or disappeared before. She only took a few days worth of insulin, which she needs to take with every meal.
Rasmussen is 5 feet 3 inches tall, 117 pounds and with blonde hair and green eyes.
She also has piercings on her right upper lip, left lower lip and right eyebrow.
Anyone with information about Rasmussen is asked to call Weber Area Consolidated Dispatch at 801-629-8221.
Facebook pages have also been set up about the disappearance of each girl.
