A Red Hook teen is safe and sound after disappearing from the grocery store just two blocks from her brownstone home for a little over a week, according to cops, who say she ran away.

Malayasia Saunders, 15, vanished after shopping at Fairway Market on Van Brunt Street around 8:50 pm on Feb. 3 and did not turn up again until around Feb. 12, according to police. She is now back in the care of her grandmother, who is her legal guardian, police said.
