Missing Springfield Township girl found in good health

A 16-year-old Springfield Township girl reported missing last week was found safe on Sunday in Sylvania Township.

Sylvania Township police found Jessica Bender at 6232 Sylvan Green Rd., and she was in apparently good health.

Lucas County sheriff s deputies took her to Rescue Crisis Mental Health Services, Detective Cathy Stooksbury said yesterday.

The girl ran away from her home Wednesday evening. She left her grandparents a note saying she cut her wrist and had to leave because no one likes her at home.

A day later, a friend saw her alone at a store at Spring Meadows Shopping Center, detectives said.
