Scout Taylor-Compton, star of the 2004 teen comedy “Sleepover,” was reunited with her family Thursday, two weeks after she went missing.

The teen actress had last been seen Aug. 12 at her family’s home in San Bernardino County.

The Apple Valley Police Department learned about her whereabouts from school officials Thursday and returned Taylor-Compton to her family, said Jodie Miller, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

“She seems to be unharmed, no evidence of any criminal activity during the time she was missing,” Miller said.

The department previously said the girl was believed to be a runaway.

Additional details weren’t immediately available.

“On behalf of her family, we are very grateful to everyone for their concern and support in helping to find Scout. We appreciate everyone’s courtesy as the family recovers,” a publicist for the actress said in a statement.

Taylor-Compton recently finished filming the independent movie “Tomorrow Is Today.”

She also goes by the name Desiree Compton, department officials said.
