Missing teenager Maddy Pacheco has been found. Her family tells WOWT Six News that she was located in an apartment in Lincoln.
Her mother told us, "I am so happy she is safe."
Maddy had last been seen by those who know her on December 7 at a Panera Bread in Omaha.
Her mother, Kim Streit, said her 16-year-old daughter told a friend that she was going to Iowa the day after she went missing from home. A tip that she was in Des Moines turned out to be false.
Relatives had also looked into leads in North Platte, where the girl used to live.
Before she disappeared, Madison had asked her mother for permission to change her phone number because of harassing calls.
We'll have more details as they become available.
