Columbia runaway, 16, son return home


Jessica Lynn Owens, the 16-year-old Hickory Ridge girl who ran away from home with her infant son, has returned to her family, Howard County police said yesterday.

Owens left her residence in the 11600 block of Sun Circle Way on Jan. 24. The Wilde Lake High School freshman had run away before and has a history of living on the street, police said.

She was in regular contact with her family, and police believe she may have been staying with a friend.

Owens and her 3-month-old son were in good health, a family member said.
