PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Police have found a missing 12-year-old girl and arrested her mother.

Ivy Tran, 12, ran away from her foster home in southeast Portland earlier this week.

Ivy is a ward of the state and police believed she may have been hiding out with family or friends, detectives said.

On Friday, police announced they had found Ivy and taken her into protective custody.

The girl's mother, 38-year-old Desha Middleton, was arrested.

She faces a charge of second-degree custodial interference.

She was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and will be arraigned on Monday.
