NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y.--- Police have located 15-year-old Marissa McGary.

Investigators say she went missing around 10 p.m. Sunday.

Police say she never came home after going for a walk on Seventh Avenue.

The teen was found safe Tuesday and is now in the care of her father.

Her mother initially told police she believed her daughter ran away to meet someone she may have met on the internet, and could be being held against her will. But investigators say she was not being held against her will, and that she was afraid to come back home because she would get in trouble.
