HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The two missing Hamden sisters have both been found safe on Friday.
Police say 9-year-old Julianna Hernandez returned home safe at around 11:50 p.m. Thursday night after she and her 12-year-old sister, Rebecca, had left their home in their mother’s Nissan Altima at 7 p.m.
An investigation revealed that Julianna was dropped off close to her home. According to Julianna, Rebecca was still in possession of her mother’s car and was accompanied by three black males.
On Friday, Rebecca was found and her silver alert was resolved. It’s unclear where she was found or if she has returned home.
Hamden police say the mother’s car, which was described as a black 2014 Nissan Altima, with the Connecticut registration AA56013, was found in New Haven. According to the girls’ mother, Joann Medina, Rebecca had driven the car in the past without her permission.
