A 16-year-old Parkland girl reported missing by her family has been found in Tacoma, the Pierce County Sheriff's Department reported Saturday.
Candra Goggans was located in the 7800 block of Ainsworth Avenue, said Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Detective Sgt. Jerry Bates. Acting on a tip, detectives spoke with Candra, who initially denied her true identity. Bates said she appeared in good health, but would remain in custody as an alleged runaway until she is further interviewed about her whereabouts last week.
Candra had been last seen Monday morning. Her family reported that she didn’t arrive at her driving school lesson or her job Monday.
Detectives notified the family early Saturday morning that she had been found.
