Authorities have located a 13-year-old girl who went missing earlier this week from Pico Rivera.

Montebello police found Annahi Tejeda Sunday afternoon leaving a detached converted garage at a complex in the 500 block of North 4th Street in Montebello, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. She was taken to the Pico Rivera sheriff's station for questioning, authorities said.

A man at the complex was taken into custody and booked on unrelated charges. It was unclear what relation, if any, he had to the girl.

Annahi had last been seen around 11:50 p.m. Wednesday in the 8900 block of Gallatin Road in Pico Rivera, according to the Sheriff's Department. Authorities offered a $10,000 reward for information that could help them find her.

At a news conference Saturday, law enforcement said Annahi walked out of her home without a phone after an argument with her mother, according to KTLA . She may have been heading to stay with relatives in the neighboring city of Montebello.

Authorities said Annahi attends middle school in Rosemead and is a student with "an impeccable attendance record and maintains a 4.0 GPA," KTLA reported.
