ALPINE — The search for a missing 16-year-old girl that raised questions about online safety and how police investigate possible runaways ended Friday.
Indica Huddleston was found safe and uninjured and was being interviewed in Salt Lake City Friday night by members of the Lone Peak Police Department and the FBI, her family confirmed.
Her family said they did not have much information about where their daughter has been or who she may have been with, but said before they rushed out the door to be reunited with their daughter that this was "the call we've been waiting for."
She was last seen a week ago about 5 p.m. Later, her family found a note indicating she had run away, which prevented an Amber Alert from being issued reporting her disappearance.
Huddleston's parents were especially worried that while she might have left home on her own, evidence suggested she had been lured away by an older man she met on Facebook. After days of wondering, police considered Thursday elevating her status to an endangered missing person, hoping to draw the public's focus to the case.
