After mom’s plea, missing NC teen girl is found safe
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) — A teenager missing since Wednesday was found safe, according to the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the sheriff’s office, 16-year-old Alexandria “Allie” Adams was last seen in the 2700 block of Castle Hayne Road. Her parents said they last saw Allie as she was getting on the school bus Wednesday morning.
According to Allie’s parents, she has mental illness, including bipolar disorder, and had not taken her medication since she went missing.
The sheriff’s office erroneously announced Friday morning that Adams had been located.
Friday afternoon, her parents placed flyers on public spaces with their missing daughter’s information.
“This was our biggest fear, is that she was going to disappear,” Joy Brown said. “She’s very easily manipulated, and she wants to fit in. … She got on the school bus to come to school. She never showed up at school.”
