A 16-year-old girl who went missing in Crown Point, Indiana was found safe Sunday morning in Arkansas, the family told NBC 5.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office had issued a statewide Amber Alert earlier Sunday on 16-year-old Madison Elizabeth Yancy Eddlemon, who was last seen in Crown Point on Saturday, Aug. 17 at around 9 a.m., wearing a black hoodie and jeans with shin high boots and a black lace choker.
The Crown Point Police Department said that Eddlemon had last been seen in her own car, which was later found abandoned near the corner of Magnolia and Sherwood Drives. Eddlemon’s belongings were still in the car and one of the windows was cracked, Crown Point police said.
Authorities believed that Eddlemon was with 22-year-old Alexander Martin Curry-Fishtorn and that she was in “extreme danger.” Eddlemon’s family had previously filed a protective order against Curry-Fishtorn for stalking, police said.
According to FBI officials, Curry-Fishtorn was taken into custody Sunday.
It was not immediately clear whether or not Eddlemon was found with Curry-Fishtorn.
