MONTEVALLO, AL (WBRC)- The Shelby County Sheriff's Office says that a runaway teenager has returned home safely.
Deputies say that Yolanda Guadalupe Martinez, 16, had run away from her home in Montevallo Nov. 9. Deputies say the family notified them Nov. 27 that the teen had returned home safely and was in the care of her family.
Investigators say they will follow up with Martinez and her family to make sure that she has not been the victim of any crime.
