PORTLAND A 14-year-old Portland girl missing for nearly two weeks returned home on Christmas Day, police said.

Desiree Hayes had last been seen near the Lloyd Center mall on December 13, and Sgt. Pete Simpson announced Wednesday that she had returned home and was safe.

Police were concerned about her welfare because she has a medical condition that requires medication and her health could be at risk without it, Simpson said.
