The third teenage girl who went missing after leaving the Loudoun County Youth Shelter earlier this month has been located.

Zandi Englebrecht, 14, was found in Leesburg on Saturday. She was "safe and sound," according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities had been searching for Zandi, 14-year-old Evelyn Diaz and 16-year-old Stephanie Thomas, after they left the Loudoun County Youth Shelter -- a facility for at-risk youth -- on Jan. 9. Evelyn and Stephanie were both located on Jan. 15 in Leesburg, though they were not together at the time.
