My dh's 13 year old niece lives in Florida and has been staying with us in Chicago for summer vacation while her mom is deployed, she has been staying with her grandparents. Our daughter is 13 as well. She is going to be returning in 2 weeks for school. Well yesterday the girls decided to get into some trouble and snuck out last night to go down to another friends and go to the movies, we couldn't find them for over 2 hiours, called the police out of panic etc. We are so upset about it.
We are going to have a sit down with the girls this morning to talk about their behavior, but am wondering should we also punish our niece for this as well? She was involved but is it our place to discipline her? How should we handle it?

My sister is more than welcome to discipline my children.
