The girl, Courtney Lyons, was spotted by an Owensboro officer. Public Information Officer Michael Hathaway said because Lyons is a juvenile, laws regarding the release of information prohibited him from answering additional questions about the incident.

Authorities had been searching for Lyons since she first went missing from Hancock County High School on March 7.
