A missing 16-year-old Glendale girl who is 7 1/2 months pregnant has been found at a family member's home after she disappeared with her two sisters on Friday , police said. Joyce Lubrin, described by officials as a chronic runaway and mentally disabled, was found safe and healthy on Monday, according to Glendale police. The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services placed her with an aunt, police said. Her sisters -- Kealani Lubrin, 15, and Ashley Lubrin, 13 -- were found late Saturday after the mother of a friend of the girls saw a TV report about police searching for them and called authorities.

The detention hearing for a 16-year-old Menifee boy charged with murder in the death of his younger half brother was postponed again Tuesday. It was the latest in a series of postponed hearings for the boy, who was arrested in July after authorities found the remains of Terry Smith Jr., 11, in a shallow grave near the family's home. Riverside County prosecutors said they plan to ask a juvenile court judge to determine whether the teen should be tried as an adult. His hearing had already been continued in July at the request of defense attorneys.

Colton Harris-Moore has been a one-boy crime wave since he was 7 years old. He has broken into houses, stolen cars and burglarized markets, hardware stores and cafes for years on this rural, woodsy island north of Seattle. Since early in 2008, when he escaped from a juvenile holding facility, Harris-Moore, now 18, has been leading police on a fruitless chase through Washington, Canada and Idaho -- stealing two boats and crash-landing three planes (he taught himself to fly on his computer, authorities suspect)

It seemed like a surefire recipe: Take the No. 1 teen drama in TV history, update it, stoke the publicity fires with news of returning favorite characters from the original, and the CW would land a huge hit. But "90210" is suffering a serious case of adolescent angst. Instead of becoming prime time's cocky homecoming king, the series developed more like the shy, insecure kid with no date to the dance. Then, to make matters worse, there has been that mean girl "American Idol" to contend with.

The most coveted shopper these days isn't a Beverly Hills housewife toting a Chanel handbag. It's more likely her daughter. By most accounts, teenagers are ideal consumers: Typically unhampered by debt, bills and mortgages, they spend freely and impulsively. Unlike their time-strapped parents, they hit the malls frequently and stay longer. And peer pressure at school makes it easy to justify dropping all of last week's allowance on the latest Lady Gaga album, Xbox 360 video game or premium jeans.

Worried about making a great impression on the first day of school? Even Miss Teen USA, Logan West, admits to feeling nervous on first days. "I was like petrified," the 18-year-old says. "I think it's just because it's a new year, it's new people, it's everything. " Often it's tempting to want to start a new school year - or any new chapter - with a totally new look as well. Just last weekend Miley Cyrus chopped her long locks into an edgy pixie crop and tweeted it for all the world to see. "Miley's cut is a bold move, and I have to say it's flattering on her," says Yesenia Almonte, beauty director for Seventeen magazine.
