A 13-year-old Garrett Hill girl, who went missing Monday afternoon, was found by U.S. Marshals in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.

With her was Ashley Ryan Hareford, 20, who Radnor Police said met the girl online and traveled to Pennsylvania from Virginia.

Radnor Township received an anonymous tip that the pair were arriving on a Mega Bus in Washington, D.C. around 7 p.m. Tuesday. Hareford was taken into custody without incident, said Lt. Christopher Flanagan.

"Our top priority to make sure she's in good mental and physical condition," he said.

The girl is being evaluated by medical staff and will be interviewed by police. She may return home tonight.

Hareford is facing a Corruption of a Minor charge from Radnor from online information gleaned by police. More charges may be added.

Do you know the the mom and dad? What the heck is with with you? Have a little compassion for these parents.

Maybe the mother was so distraught she couldn't be interviewed, maybe she isn't involved with the child or family, maybe she is deceased ... this is a horrible thing that happened and it was a combination of poor judgement on the child's part as well as a real creep that was lurking on line and in her neighborhood. Let's give the parents a break and be thankful she was found and returned home quickly.

Don't be so quick to judge the kid as a creep. Take a peek at his facebook and you can simply just tell there is something wrong with the guy...but I wouldn't go labeling the schmuck a predator...just dumb. http://www.facebook.com/juggalo4lyfe9899

The most heartwrenching thing about this for the parents .. is the dad was quoted as saying that his older daughter, too, ran away from home at some point in the past.
