KAMLOOPS — Search and Rescue volunteers from Kamloops were called to the North Thompson valley to help colleagues from Wells Gray SAR search for a missing teen last night.

This morning, June 17, Volunteer Search Master Alan Hobler confirmed the teen had been located, but could not provide further details.

The teen had been missing for more than a day. Hobler said it was cold and rainy in the area, and that had searchers concerned for the girl.

According to the teen's mother the girl had been spotted by search crews, but did not return home. She says the search was called off.  

A photo, or description of the missing teen has not been provided.
