A 16-year-old Lawrence girl who had been missing since Friday evening returned home Sunday evening, according to her family.

The family of Chelsea R. Tebe, a Free State High School student, had taken to social media throughout the weekend, seeking help in locating her. The girl had not been heard from since Friday night.

The family had also filed a police report.

Chelsea's mother, Charity Tebe, contacted the Journal-World Sunday evening and reported that Chelsea had returned safely and was not harmed during her absence.

Charity Tebe said she wanted to thank the many people who had helped spread the word about her daughter.

Chelsea has been found and is home safe! No details yet.
I've been told it was because of this article and the publicity that she was found.
A HUGE THANK YOU to the LJ World. And Shaun, I owe you.
Now, I am going to go have a big relief cry and eat a box of chocolates.

It says family is searching...are the police actively searching? I have reposted on facebook, I can't even imagine what this family is going through. Keeping you all in my thoughts for a safe return. I guess I dont understand why this does not met criteria of an amber alert. Are they suggestion she is a run away, or no foul play? I also qustion why this is not on the front page of LJWORLD, I had to scroll down to find it? To the family there is a fb page called seeking the lost....they're network of people are endless try that.

It says the last time they heard from her was a text. Who's phone did she text from? Seems like there should be an amber alert issued! Praying she is found safe SOON.

Curious as to why this is not placed up top as breaking news. I've seen much less serious issues that people could care less about given that designation and kept there the entire day.

Secondly why no Amber Alert? What are the rules concerning the Amber Alert system that this girl is not on it?

At any rate, highlight this as breaking news LJW in order to make more people aware of the situation and hopefully find this girl.
