SALT LAKE CITY — A 16-year-old girl missing for 12 days returned home Sunday.

Mharina Acciaio was last seen July 16 when she was dropped off at City Creek Center. Sunday, Salt Lake police detective Rick Wall said Acciaio showed up at her house. He said she was in good condition.

The girl's father had said that his daughter is bipolar and functions at the mental capacity of a 5-year-old. He said she needs to take medication twice a day.

But police also had noted Acciaio had a history of running away and that she was familiar with the downtown Salt Lake area.

Where Acciaio was for nearly two weeks and whether foul play was involved was still being investigated Monday. Police had said previously that they did not suspect foul play.
