This article is more than 2 years old.

Boston police said Wednesday they have located a missing 13-year-old girl who had been last seen on Jan. 11.

The department thanked "the public for their assistance in safely locating Maria Fernandez," of Boston. In their one-sentence statement, police didn't say where or when she was located.

On Jan. 17, police had said Fernandez was last seen on Jan. 11 at about 3 p.m. at the Indigo House, which is in Medford, not in Arlington, as police had said.

News that Fernandez had been located came a day after the department announced it had located 23-year-old Olivia Ambrose, who had gone missing over the holiday weekend from a Boston bar.

After a media frenzy over Ambrose's disappearance, some on social media called for the public to help find Fernandez.
