UPDATE: Runaway Eagle Mountain Teen Found Safe

EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah, July 22, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A runaway 15-year-old girl from Eagle Mountain has been located.

Kaylie English was found safe and well Thursday, though no other details were immediately available.

A news release from Utah County Sheriff’s Office said on June 22, deputies responded to a report that Kaylie ran away. Her father told deputies she was last seen at about 9 p.m. on June 21 after she returned home from a church activity.

The news release said: “Kaylie reportedly left a note telling her parents to not try to find her. She is reportedly with a friend, but investigators have not been able to identify who that friend might be or where she is.

“On July 1, investigators received a tip from the Greyhound bus station in Salt Lake City that Kaylie was spotted boarding a bus bound for Reno, Nevada. Investigators have been unable to confirm this sighting in Salt Lake City. They notified Greyhound and law enforcement in Reno and have not been able to confirm that Kaylie ever arrived in Reno, or if she actually boarded a bus in Salt Lake City.”

The news release said investigators have no information leading them to believe Kaylie was taken against her will, but there was serious concern for her safety as she reportedly had no resources to care for herself.

She does have distant family in Reno but it’s not thought she would contact them.
