COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — The Colorado Springs Police Department had asked the public for assistance to locate two 11-year-old girls.

The department said Kaydence Betzler and Julia Sherer both left their respective homes in the 2400 block of Farnsworth Dr. and the 2500 block of Astrozon Blvd. on the afternoon of March 1.

School District 2 told News 5 that the girls walked away from Panorama Middle School right after lunch. When they did not show up for class the district reviewed security cameras and saw them walking away from school.

The girls were found just before 5 p.m. on Tuesday about a mile away at a Carl's Jr. on Chelton and Academy.

The family of one of the girls told News 5 that a teacher was driving home from school and saw them near the restaurant and called the police.

They are both home safe.
