Manchester Police were notified that the girl - Hailey Rheaume-Fox - had been located by way of a phone call from Rheaume-Fox's mother around 6 p.m. Monday evening.
"The daughter ended up making contact with her mother and they made arrangements to return her to the police department," said Chief of the Manchester Police Department Michael Hall. "We facilitated her return to the Bennington School."
Rheaume-Fox was attending a meeting at St. Paul's Catholic Church on June 21 at around 7:30 p.m. when she disappeared.
At some point during the meeting, Rheaume-Fox had said she was going to the bathroom. About 15 minutes later, after someone had checked the restroom, it was determined that Rheaume-Fox had left the meeting, Hall said.
Following her disappearance, Hall said the Manchester Police Department put out a general broadcast to check the immediate area.
In a telephone interview on Monday afternoon, Hall said police had reason to believe Rheaume-Fox's disappearance had been planned. "Based upon information from other students there's some indication that this may have been planned on by the part of Fox and she may be in the company of another student of the Bennington School who has since graduated and left the program," Hall said.
Rheaume-Fox was in the custody of the Vermont Department for Children and Families at the time of disappearance.
