Fifteen-year-old Siena Stubbs was reported missing last week and found Sunday morning in Chula Vista.

Fifteen-year-old Fallbrook teen Siena Stubbs was found in a Chula Vista home Sunday morning after calling her mom and was returned safely to her family after being reported as a runaway.

In a phone call with the Village News Saturday night, Mr. & Mrs. Stubbs said it appeared Siena had run away from her Fallbrook home on April 28, which was reported to the San Diego Sheriff's Department. Her parents said she left a note, but she didn't have a cell phone or any way of tracking. A person from her school reportedly dropped her off in Chula Vista, although there was no sign of her at the home where she was supposedly dropped.

In addition to the San Diego Sheriff's Department and Chula Vista PD, the parents were working with Saved in America, a California non-profit organization of former police officers and Navy SEALs turned licensed and insured private investigators who assist parents and law enforcement in locating missing and exploited children at no cost to the parents.

Her mother said, "We are so glad Siena called. We are so appreciative of all the support from people who put out the word because we don't have social media. Siena's father also said, "We are so grateful that we have found our daughter that no words can describe." He continued, "Multiple people from the San Diego Sheriff's Department were helping in their capacity, in addition to the Chula VIsta Police Department and the nonprofit Saved in America." He also thanked Village News for reaching out and working to spread the word.

According to the Saved in America website, since their initial operation in December 2014, they have performed 260 successful child recoveries. The approach and techniques used by Saved In America help guide the rest of the nation on how to stop child sex trafficking before it happens, by focusing on runaway and missing children.

Parents ask for help finding 15-year-old Siena Stubbs

Siena Stubbs, a 15-year-old Fallbrook resident, has been missing since April 28th when she left her home in Fallbrook, California. Siena may have a little green bird carrier with her and two backpacks. What she is wearing is not known at this time. Her missing poster lists her as having brown eyes and light turquoise hair. She is 5'4″ and 120 pounds.

According to Siena's mother, Danielle Stubbs, Siena ran away Thursday night. She did leave a note. She reportedly has no cell phone with her or any means of tracking. The parents said they believe she was picked up by a friend from school who dropped her off in Chula Vista. Mr. and Mrs. Stubbs in a phone call Saturday night said, "The Chula Vista Police Department is involved and searched a house that a friend from her school supposedly dropped her off to, but there is no evidence she was dropped off at that house, according to the RING system." The parents believe she may have been dropped off at the end of that street and she may be in the Chula Vista area.

The parents are working with Saved in America, a California non-profit organization of former police officers and Navy SEALs turned licensed and insured private investigators who assist parents and law enforcement in locating missing and exploited children at no cost to the parents.

According to their website, since their initial operation in December 2014 Saved In America has performed 260 successful child recoveries. The approach and techniques used by Saved In America help guide the rest of the nation on how to stop child sex trafficking before it happens, by focusing on runaway and missing children. Saved In America has taught its investigative techniques to the Human Smuggling & Trafficking Center, Washington, DC, Licensed Investigator Associations in Texas, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alabama, and for the Naval Special Warfare Command in Coronado, California.

The parents have reported this to the San Diego Sheriff's Department. According to the parents, the Sheriff's department can't assign an investigator to the case until Monday.
