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.

When I started following the research on child well-being about two decades ago, the focus was almost always girls' problems - their low self-esteem, lax ambitions, eating disorders and, most alarming, high rates of teen pregnancy. Now, though, with teen births down more than 50% from their 1991 peak and girls dominating classrooms and graduation ceremonies, boys and men are increasingly the ones under examination. Their high school grades and college attendance rates have remained stalled for decades.

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)

Charles Manson has been behind bars since 1969, but he's still a hero to budding sociopath Chloe. When the prep-school dropout declares early in the film that her master plan is to become famous, it's clear she's trouble: In the movies, only bad people pursue fame. In her thick eyeliner and all-black outfits, Chloe (Gia Mantegna) could be just another cyber-bullying mean girl. Her greatest asset as a destroyer is her ability to hide in plain sight. But she's also model-gorgeous, which is how she gets two dopes to mistake her manipulations for fun. Nick (Devon Werkheiser)

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.
