The 11-year-old girl missing from a Brooklyn Park home, Tanaisha Latriece Tennin, has been found safe and well.

Brooklyn Park police said she was found by an "alert neighbor" in Bloomington, and she's currently safe with police.

Tennin is reported to have run away from a home in Brooklyn Park where police removed several more children from their mother's custody because of "concerning living conditions" on Monday.

The missing girl apparently ran off after an argument with the mother.

It has since emerged that an 8-year-old child died at the house this past February, according to WCCO.

Brooklyn Park PD say the incident remains under investigation.

Original story

Brooklyn Park police are looking for an 11-year-old girl who went missing in the early hours of Monday morning.

Brooklyn Park Deputy Chief Mark Bruley says officers received a report of the child going missing around 3 a.m., with word that she was last seen walking away from the 8200 block of Queen Avenue after and argument with her mother. 

They searched the neighborhood she was last seen but came away with nothing. 

The only description of the child is her name, Tanaisha Latriece Tennin, and the photo above. Chief Bruley says they can't provide any further detail because of a "lack of cooperation." 

In addition to the 11-year-old running from home, Bruley says other children in the home were removed from the mother's custody and placed on a protective hold due to "concerning living conditions" and the mother being uncooperative.

Anyone with information to the child's whereabouts is asked to call 911. Alternatively you can submit an anonymous tip to Brooklyn Park PD via its Tip 411 service here.
