Cooper City teen found safe after missing for a week

Erin Arno, 15, dropped off at police station, parents say


COOPER CITY, Fla. – A 15-year-old girl who was reported missing last week was dropped off at the Cooper City Police Department Friday morning, the teen's parents told Local 10 News.

Authorities said Erin Arno was last seen about 10 p.m. April 7 sleeping at her home in Cooper City.

According to deputies, Erin suffers from a personality disorder and depression, and did not have her medication with her.

The Arnos said they didn't notice anything unusual about Erin's behavior the night she went missing. In fact, they said they were all out celebrating her sister's birthday before she disappeared.

"It's very frustrating not knowing where she's at, it's tough (and) we have a hard time with it," Erin’s father, Lee Arno, told Local 10 News on Thursday. "I don't sleep well at night. My daughter's not home. It's really difficult on us."

Authorities have not said where Erin had been or who she had been with for the past week, but her parents said she was interviewed by detectives.

Broward sheriff's deputies said Erin has since been reunited with her parents.
