Tulsa Police say three young girls are back with their family after they wandered out of their house around 3 a.m. Friday morning.

Police say they got a call Friday morning from a good Samaritan who said they found three young girls walking and riding bikes by themselves near 21st and 129th around 3:30 a.m. When police arrived, the girls told them they were ages five to eight years old. Two of them were riding bikes and the other girl was walking.

The girls told officers they were walking to the QuikTrip near their house, which is a little less than a mile away because they had been there with their dad before and wanted to go visit again. The three little girls said they decided to go, put on shoes, and headed out the door without any money.

According to officers, their father was at work, their mother was asleep, and their brother was asleep by the door when they brought the girls back home. Tulsa police Lieutenant Chris Moudy said this family got very lucky because this could have resulted in a much different ending.

"This was a good outcome, so luckily the citizens who saw them were good citizens and called it in,” Moudy said. “Luckily they didn't get hit by a car, or a stray dog, I mean so many things at three in the morning that could go wrong, and everybody did their part and got them safely where they need to be."

Police say the parents are not in trouble and did not do anything wrong here, they are just happy everyone is safe at home now this morning.
