WILSONVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

Shelby County Sheriff's Office announced today that they have safely located a missing teen.

In a press release they said that 15-year-old Destiny Lynn Lawson was found in Shelby County, though they didn't provide additional details on her discovery.

Lawson was last seen at her foster parent's residence on Shelby County Highway 56 in Wilsonville on Thursday, Dec. 29.

Investigators believed Lawson ran away and foul play was not suspected in her disappearance. Lawson's biological mother, Dessie Lawson, was arrested on January 12 of this year for interfering with custody. She was released on bond the next day.

The Sheriff's Office said that they are grateful to everyone who assisted in locating Lawson.
