Advertiser Staff

Eight foster children who were listed on the state's Missing Children Web site were found this week, the Department of Human Services said.

The teenagers are believed to have voluntary left their foster homes.

Some 48 children remain on the Missing Children Web site(www.hawaii.gov/missing-children).

Anyone with information on a child listed on the site is asked to call police.

DHS said it is working with the Hawaii Foster Youth Coalition to contact children who returned to their foster homes after running away to discuss issues that caused them to leave.
