UNDATED (KTHV) -- A Pope County runaway teen has been found and is safe.

Sheriff Aaron Duvall with Pope County said in a press release that Jennifer Machelle Delcomyn, 17, tried to ask for a ride from someone in Hector to take her to Fort Smith March 6. When the driver said they weren't headed that direction, she asked to be taken to a local business in Hector.

The driver told police that when they dropped off Delcomyn, they called authorities.

Duvall said they believe she got a ride from Hector to a truck stop in Russellville where she possibly got a ride to the Fort Smith area where her father lives.
