Madill was located Monday in Pioneer Park by the Layton Police Department and has been returned to the care of Child and Family Services.
Alice Mpawenimana, 15, was also found safe, the statement said, and has been returned to the care of Child and Family Services.
Authorities said they had been concerned for the girls’ safety because of their ages and the length of time they had been gone.
