MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities in central Minnesota say a 14-year-old girl who left her St. Cloud home last week was found safe.

The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office says Alexus Rayne Norberg was found Wednesday. Earlier this week, the sheriff’s office sought the public’s help in finding her as the teenager was reported missing after leaving her home on Jan. 19 without her parents’ permission.

Law enforcement thanked the public for their help in spreading the word about Norberg on social media.
