The teenager who went missing two weeks ago from the Spokane Community College campus has been found “alive and well,” according to Spokane police.

Sara McNease, 17, who also goes by Sara Vincent, was reported missing by her mother, Emily Vincent, on Oct. 8.

In a statement Tuesday, police said they had been in contact with an attorney representing McNease, and that they closed the missing persons case.

The day McNease was reported missing, police found a note in her car saying she had left with her boyfriend.

Hours before police released their statement, Emily Vincent wrote on the “Find Sara Vincent” Facebook page, “Our hearts are beyond aching for her return,” with photos and a poster urging those with information to come forward.

The Vincent family was not immediately available for comment.
