Police on Monday said that a 13-year-old girl who went missing after leaving her home in Koriyama, Fukushima Prefecture, on June 24, has turned up at a police station in Koriyama.
According to police, Mana Sato entered the police station at around 2 p.m. Monday and was taken into protective custody. Police said she was not injured in any way. No details have been released as to where the girl was for the past four weeks.
Sato was last seen by her mother as she left for school. A short time later, her mother received a call from the school saying that her daughter had not shown up, Fuji TV reported.
Police said it appeared that Sato had gone to, or was taken to Tokyo, after the location of her cell phone was tracked to Tokyo between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on the day of her disappearance. The phone was found later that day in a toilet bowl in a bookstore near Tokyo Station.© Japan Today
