A teen who went missing in an incident seemingly involving a kidnapping has been found safe, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said in a release.
15-year-old Samantha White was reported missing Tuesday morning by her aunt. Authorities said White left for school, but her backpack and books were found scattered in front of the home a short time later along with a note intimating that she had been kidnapped.
White was found in a nearby neighborhood about 1 p.m. She was spotted by a resident who recognized her from a newscast.
PCSO said it is not seeking any suspects in the case.
