TACOMA, Wash. Tacoma police have found a missing teenage girl. Officers say Briana Troyer, 16, is okay. 

Police say officers received tips that led them to a house Wednesday morning where the girl and Terrence Powell, a level one sex offender, were asleep.

Witnesses saw the two leave a bowling alley Tuesday. 

Police say the girl, a special needs student, will be returned to her family. Her father is Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer. 

Officers say they haven't determined yet if Powell did anything wrong.
