Missing Champaign Teen Found in Cape Girardeau, MO

A 13-year-old girl reported missing in Champaign, Ill., has been found with her alleged abductor in southeast Missouri.

KMOV-TV reports that Cleo Younce was found unharmed Friday afternoon in Cape Girardeau.

Champaign police say a 21-year-old man with the girl was arrested without incident while walking out of a Wal-Mart.

The girl’s mother called police Thursday afternoon when her daughter failed to return home from a walk. The girl called her mother within a few hours saying she had been abducted, prompting Champaign police to issue an Amber Alert.

Authorities say the teen and the suspect were acquainted through mutual family friends.
