A Pasquotank County teenager reported missing by her mother Monday has been located unharmed and is safely back home, Sheriff Randy Cartwright said.
Caitlin Williams, 16, was found in the parking lot of the Ramada Inn in Nags Head on Wednesday, Cartwright said.
Williams apparently went to the Outer Banks with some friends and a young man, Cartwright said.
No charges have been filed in the incident, but the sheriff’s department is continuing its investigation, he said.
Williams was reported missing shortly before 1:15 p.m. Monday, hours after her mother discovered that she wasn’t home, Cartwright said.
