Leander police have found the two teenage girls who went missing after a party at a nightclub in southeast Austin on Saturday night.

Police said the girls were found uninjured at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. They have not released any more details.

The two 16-year-olds, Melanie Benefield and Kaitlyn Eaves, attended an all-ages party Saturday night at Emo’s East on East Riverside Drive. They were dropped off at 9 p.m., but were nowhere to be found when Benefield’s parents returned to pick them up at 2 a.m.

Police said the girls had been in communication with their parents via text message during the party, but their parents did not hear from them afterward. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
