Kiara Hightower has not been seen since 6 a.m. June 27. The baby pictured is not her 13-day-old son.

A 15-year-old girl and her 13-day-old son have been found safe in Union City, an Atlanta police spokeswoman said.

Kiara Hightower and Terion Hightower were last seen at 6 a.m. Friday, Atlanta police Officer Kim Jones said in an emailed statement.

Kiara had gotten into an argument with her mother before she left the family’s Fairburn Road home, Jones said.

Concerned for the welfare of her daughter and infant grandson, the mother, Erica Hightower, notified police, who issued a lookout for the pair.

Just before 6 p.m., that lookout was canceled.

“The two juveniles were returned to their residence,” Jones said. “Kiara and Terion were checked out and both were in good health.”

Staff writer Daniel Wilco compiled this report.
