Meredyth Conrad has returned home and is no longer considered at risk, WCNC reports.


Authorities in South Carolina are asking for the public’s help in the search for a teenage girl who went missing from her Lexington home overnight.

According to WIS News 10, 17-year-old Meredyth Conrad was last seen at around 10 p.m. Sunday, and is believed to have left home sometime between then and Monday morning.

Police sources told the news station that Meredtyh is “in crisis” and is considered at-risk. Authorities do not know if she alone or with another person, and have not provided a clothing description.

The missing teen is described as 5’4″ tall and weighing about 160 pounds. She has blue eyes and blond hair.

Anyone with possible information on Meredyth Conrad’s whereabouts is urged to call Lexington Police at  803-358-1520. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call 1-888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372) or visit

Tips leading to the missing teen may come with a reward of up to $1,000.
