Arvada City management, elected officials, police employees and citizens will be on hand when the City opens its doors to two new community police stations on Tuesday, March 4 and Wednesday, March 5.

ARVADA, Colo. — The Arvada Police Department (APD) said a 16-year-old girl who went missing last week had been found at a Denver library.

APD tweeted just after 5 p.m. Thursday that the girl, whom 9NEWS is no longer identifying because she is a juvenile, had been located within the last two hours at the public library at West 46th Avenue and Utica Street.

APD said she was reported by library staff when she walked in by herself and was being medically checked as a precaution. The police department added investigators would be following up with her and her family.

Police said Saturday that the girl was last seen getting into a van Friday evening. Police later said they learned she was getting a ride to a local bus stop.

In addition to APD and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, Jefferson County Human Services and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were involved in the search.
