A missing Utah teenager last seen in Las Vegas has been found, according to the child’s family.
The family posted on Facebook on Saturday morning they found 17-year-old Sarah Dunsey and thanked everyone who helped spread the message of her disappearance.
The family created a video and social media campaign to find Dunsey. In the video, Sarah’s family pleaded for her safe return. The video received more than 900,000 views on Facebook.
Dunsey disappeared on January 15th on the Las Vegas Strip. Her family feared she was being held against her will and was a victim of sex trafficking.
Authorities were less certain of the cause of her disappearance. There was no evidence of kidnapping or sex trafficking, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Investigators were treating the child as a runaway.
In the same Facebook post, the family asked for privacy and space as they begin to heal.
