Authorities announced at a press conference Friday night that 15-year-old Kathryn Stalbaum of Genesee, Wisconsin has been found safe approximately 100 miles away in Chicago.

Investigators said Stalbaum approached a police officer in Chicago and asked for help, and she is now with Chicago police. Additional details about how she got to Chicago and why she was there were unavailable.
