Endangered Person Advisory Cancelled after Missing 16-Year-Old is Found

A teenage girl is now home safe after being reported missing earlier this week.

Officers say 16-year-old Ariah Matthews disappeared from the area of West Nichols and North Douglas in Springfield Tuesday night.

She was considered endangered because of a mental health diagnosis that she had stopped taking medication for.

Investigators say Matthews was located safely, but have not said where or when she was found.
