BREAKING: Missing teen Madison Bell found SAFE nearly a week after her car, cell phone discovered abandoned in church parking lot

A missing teen who had vanished in Ohio on Sunday has been found safe.

WJW reports that Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera confirmed on Saturday morning that Madison Bell, 18, was located safely, though it is not yet known how or where she was found.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Madison’s mother reported the teen missing on Sunday when she didn’t return from what she had told her mother was a trip to the tanning salon. Madison’s car was discovered in a church parking lot near the tanning salon in Greenfield, with her wallet and cellphone inside. The keys were reportedly still in the ignition.

As WJW notes, police said on Friday they believed Madison may have chosen to leave voluntarily. Her parents have reportedly been notified their daughter was found safely, though it is unclear where Madison is at this time.

This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
