The chief said the family of Amber Nicole Aguirre had reported to him that the girl had returned.
They did not elaborate or explain where she had been while she was missing.
The family reported the girl missing after she said she was going to the restroom as they ate at the New China Buffet in the College North Shopping center that evening. She never returned to the table.
Treviño had said earlier that the family had just visited friends in Pettus.
Police never did suspect foul play in the disappearance.
