TACOMA, WA (AP) -

An Amber Alert has been canceled after a 16-year-old girl was found safe in a Tacoma-area home.

Police spokesman Mark Fulghum said Briana Troyer was at Tower Bowling Lanes with members of the Wilson High School bowling team and left there at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday with 21-year-old  Terrence D. Powell, a Level 1 sex offender -- the lowest level.

Fulghum issued an Amber Alert early Wednesday for the girl. It described her as a special education student with a mental age of about 9-year-old.

Tips led officers to a Tacoma house about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday where they found Briana Troyer and Terrence D. Powell asleep.

Fulghum says the girl will be returned to her family. Her father is Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer.

Investigators will determine if Powell did anything wrong.
