A 16-year-old girl returned home on Saturday night after running away from her Riverside home more than a week ago.

Emilia Cortes was reported missing on March 24 by her mother, who lives in the western suburb, according to a statement from Riverside police.

The teen had snuck out the window of her father’s home in the 5200 block of South Rutherford in Chicago, police said.

The girl saw a media report and returned home unharmed about 9 p.m. Saturday, police said. She was refusing to tell investigators where she had been.
