INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Metropolitan Police detectives said two sisters who were reported missing Thursday night have been found safe.

Kellie Werner, 11, and her sister, Kaytlynn Werner, 6, were last seen leaving their home in the 2100 block of N. Riley Ave. between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday.  The two girls were walking south on Riley Ave. in their school uniforms.

“Actually neighbors had last seen them around 5 o’clock in the afternoon walking down the street,” said Officer Genae Cook with IMPD. “They had come home from school, left their belongings there, and then walked back out of the house.”

At the time of the disappearance, Cook said detectives didn’t suspect foul play. The girls were found early Friday morning.

The children haven’t run away before, Cook said.

“There is no history of it. The parents are concerned. They had thought that the children were at home. One parent thought that the children were with the other parent, so there was a little bit of a miscommunication there.”
