Missing teenage girl from Andrus Children's Center in Yonkers found

The student who went missing from the Andrus Children's Center in Yonkers has been found.



Ilana Lazarov walked out of the facility around 5 p.m. on Friday, according to her mother.



Because the teen is a minor, the school wouldn't say where or how she was found, only saying she is alive.



Yesterday, a panicked Devora Lazarov pleaded for her daughter's return saying the teen is bipolar, has a long history of psychiatric problems and is a threat to herself and others. The teenager had been under watch for bad behavior and was about to switch schools.
