A young teenager who was reported missing last week was located by Summerville Police. The girl was at a residence in North Carolina.
Family members posted on social media that the thirteen-year-old had been in contact with someone claiming to be her half-sister. They said that the girl left home on August 21st and police determined she got into a gray four-door vehicle.
Throughout the time that she was gone, the teen had limited contact with her family in Chattooga County, according to Summerville Police. Detectives with the Summerville Police Department were able to make contact with law enforcement in North Carolina who went to the place where the girl was staying. North Carolina authorities say that at first the people denied that the girl was there, but she was later found hiding in a nearby field.
The girl was transported back to Chattooga County by the Summerville Police Department.
