PARAMOUNT (CNS) - A 14-year-old girl who went missing over the weekend in Paramount has been found, authorities announced Thursday.

Jaqualine Ramos Espinoza had last been seen about 1 a.m. Saturday in her bedroom in the 8400 block of Fairton Street, just west of Downey Avenue and south of Somerset Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. Her family realized around 8 that morning that she was gone.

Authorities said there was no sign of foul play, with all indications suggesting the girl left voluntarily. A neighbor's Ring camera captured footage of her walking in the area around 3:30 a.m. in a gray hoodie, black-and-white pajama pants and black-and-white Converse shoes.

Sheriff's officials said she had no prior history of running away, and in combination with her age, they considered her to be an at-risk missing person.

No details were disclosed about the circumstances under which she was located.
