The Pulaski County sheriff's office said a Jacksonville teen missing since Thursday has been found.
Courtney Fason, 17, was found at home on East Coffelt Road after an anonymous caller reported her whereabouts to deputies, the sheriff's office said Monday morning. She had disappeared Thursday after running away from home, taking her grandfather's Glock handgun with her, authorities said.
She was taken to the Pulaski County Juvenile Intake Office and released to the intake officer, deputies said.
The Pulaski County sheriff’s office is searching for a Jacksonville teen who has been missing since Thursday.
Officials say Courtney Fason, 17, was reported missing after 2 p.m. Thursday, after her grandparents realized she was not at home.
Investigator Kevin Collie said Fason lives with her grandparents on Kinrade Cove in Jacksonville.
“She ran away from home and took her grandfather’s [.40-caliber Glock handgun], a tablet and a WiFi device,” Collie said.
Collie said Fason had previously run away Tuesday, when she stole her grandmother’s car and iPhone. The teen was found and taken back home Wednesday, he said.
Since she was reported missing Thursday, Fason has been posting on Facebook, but she has not revealed her location, officials say.
Collie said police don't know who Fason may be traveling with or what kind of vehicle she is in.
Anyone with information about Fason’s whereabouts is asked to call the Pulaski County sheriff’s office at (501) 340-6963.
