SUMTER COUNTY, S.C. — Investigators with the Sumter County Sheriff's Office say a 15-year-old girl who left home on Saturday night and had been missing for more than 24 hours has been found safe.

The sheriff's office initially said on Sunday that it is looking for the teen who left her home on Manning Avenue around 6 p.m. after a disagreement with a parent. She had also allegedly been seen at a store along the road overnight.

However, an update just after 8 p.m. from the sheriff's office said that the teen had been located, was safe, and had returned to her home.

The sheriff's office also thanked those who had shared the information adding that social media awareness is often one of the fastest ways to solve some missing person cases.
