Police say Taylor Dittmar was found just before noon after someone spotted her on Frederick Avenue in St. Joseph.
The teen was reported missing and endangered Wednesday evening when she reportedly ran away after being dropped off at the East Hills Shopping Center.
Police say she was with a male she met at the mall.
Capt. Kevin Castle said because the teen is being treated as a runaway, she's in the care of juvenile custody at this time.
