Police say they found two teen girls who went missing in Philadelphia.

Shyrice Clark, 13, and her 3-year-old sister Shaniya Clark went missing after leaving their grandmother's house on the 1400 block of Wyoming Avenue at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, according to Philadelphia Police.

The girls boarded a Route 75 SEPTA bus bound for Margaret and Orthodox Streets, but then went missing.

Philadelphia Police say the girls were with their cousin, 15-year-old Allisha Lewis, who was reported missing on Friday.

Shortly before 1 p.m. on Sunday, police found Shaniya near Bridge and Valley streets in the Wissinoming section of the city. Police say the girl appeared to be in good condition but was taken to St. Christopher's Hospital for evaluation. Her mother, Zaneta Niles, was also notified.

The young girl told police that Shyrice and Allisha dropped her off at Bridge and Valley before leaving the scene.

On Monday, officials say detectives found Shyrice and Allisha. Both teens returned home and are safe, according to investigators.

Police have not yet revealed where the girls were found.
