ROCKWELL CITY, Iowa – A Rockwell City teenager missing since the weekend has been located, police told Channel 13.
Cassie Simkins, 16, was last seen at about 2:30a.m. Sunday in her home. Authorities initially believed Simkins was with someone named Chance Kinney.
Family members’ concern was raised as they believed she didn’t have her epilepsy medication with her.
On Thursday evening at about 9:30 p.m., Rockwell City police received a tip on the whereabouts of Simkins and Kinney.
A short time later, law enforcement surrounded the property in Lytton and made contact with Simkins and Chance. Simkins was unharmed.
Chance was arrested on an unrelated warrant and Simkins was taken into protective custody.
