KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Kalamazoo officers say they have been able to reach a 17-year-old girl who was reported missing and confirmed she is OK.

Arianna Smith was reported missing by her family on Sept. 15. Her family had been able to maintain some contact with her, but then shortly before Thanksgiving said they couldn’t reach her.

Kalamazoo police put out a public alert Thursday seeking information on where she might be. They said Friday they had gotten in touch with her and confirmed her welfare.
