The girl, who had left home in late February, was identified Thursday as she was entering the U.S.

She had visited the International Peace Garden, which straddles the U.S.-Canadian border, then returned the same day, said Chris Misson with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The girl's older sister said Tuesday the girl was not harmed and now is at home in Larned, Kan.

Russell Rice, the 20-year-old man she was traveling with, was being held Tuesday in the Devils Lake jail, pending extradition to Kansas.

The Hays (Kans.) Daily News reported Rice could face charges of harboring, concealing, aiding and abetting a runaway.
