A teen who went missing in rural Saline County Monday evening has been found.

According to the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, on Wednesday at about 2:00 Samantha Craddock was located in the area of Fairchilds Road and Farrelly Road in rural Saline County.  She was found in the area by a Saline County Highway Department employee.

Craddock was transported to the Salina Regional Health Center as a precaution to be checked for possible weather-related health issues.

Craddock ran away from St. Francis Community Services, 5097 W. Cloud Street, Monday at about 7: 10 in the evening.

ORIGINAL: The Saline County Sheriff’s Office is seeking a runaway teen who they say is missing and in danger.

Lt. Mike Smith says that 14-year-old Samantha Alicia Rose Craddock is among three teenage girls who ran away from the St. Francis Community Services facility at 5097 W. Cloud Street at around 7:00 Monday night. Deputies quickly located two of the three, a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl.

Craddock was not located. She was last seen running from the facility south across a pasture. Deputies searched for her until about 10:30 Monday night. The search resumed Tuesday morning. Volunteers are searching on foot and on horseback.

Craddock is a white female, 5′ 5″ tall, 130 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. She was wearing a dark green shirt, dark gray sweats, a dark green zip up sweatshirt, and green shoes.

Smith adds that Craddock left without prescription medication that she takes on a daily basis.
