Missing northeast Arkansas teen found in Nebraska

An Arkansas teenager who'd been reported missing has been found in Nebraska

UPDATE (2/1/18):

Authorities say a missing teen from northeast Arkansas was found in Nebraska early Thursday morning.

Truman police say the 16-year-old girl was found at 2 a.m. in O'Neill, a city of about 3,600 people northwest of Omaha.

Officers say Farmer was found with a man from Tennessee that she had reportedly met on social media and who officers had been attempting to locate for four days.

Farmer's mother took to Facebook to show her gratitude for those who helped bring the girl home safely.

"I can not thank everyone enough for all of your hard work," she said. "Because of you, the hard work of officers, and the blessings from God, my husband and I will be able to hug our daughter again."


ORIGINAL (1/31/18):

A prayer vigil was scheduled for Wednesday night in northeast Arkansas as authorities continued searching for a missing teenage girl.

Trumann police reported that the 16 year old was last seen about 11 p.m. Saturday. The girl's parents told KATV content partner WREG News Channel 3 that it appears their daughter crawled out of a window at their home and ran away.

They believe their daughter may be with someone she met on the internet, according to the Memphis TV station.

"We don't know who it is," the girl's mother said. "They found some chats, sexually explicit chats. And that's all we really know."

Trumann police were reportedly examining the girl's laptop computer to see where she may have traveled.

The prayer vigil was set for 6:30 p.m. at Northeast Arkansas Baptist Church in Trumann.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Trumann police at 870-483-6423.

After this story was published, KATV removed the girl's name and the names of her family members because of police reports that she may have been sexually assaulted.
