The 16-year-old from Townsville who was reported missing last week has been returned home safely.

Hannah White Martin was located in New York during a traffic stop Wednesday, said Maj. Joseph Ferguson of the Vance County Sheriff’s Office.

“She is home safe and it does not appear she was taken against her will,” he said.

Martin was reported missing April 1 by her mother, Michelle.

Family and friends created a Facebook page called, Find Hannah White Martin, in the wake of her absence.

On Tuesday, the Facebook page posted a status that Martin had been found.
