Missing teen found in Milford

MilfordA 17-year-old girl was missing for a few hours Tuesday in Milford but she has been found and is safe.

The teen was reported missing Thursday morning from the area of Wellington Road, just off of Route 15 in the northern part of the city.

Authorities were reportedly concerned about her welfare because of her medical history and because the morning snowfall was beginning to intensify over southern Connecticut. According to police reports, the girl had left Wellington Road on foot.

The teen was located by early afternoon. Milford Police Officer Jeffrey Nielsen, the department’s spokesman, confirmed that she was okay. Her name is being withheld because of her age.
