Missing Teen Marley McKenna Spindler Found Safe

Marley Mckenna Spindler, 16, was last seen Thursday August 20th.

Missing South Carolina teen Marley McKenna Spindler has been found safe in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, according to the Horry County Police Department.

The teen was found safe at approximately noon Wednesday by the Mt. Pleasant Police Department and will soon be reunited with her family.

No other details have been released at this time.

Spindler vanished nearly a week ago, on August 20th, after eating breakfast with her friends at Chick-Fil-A in Surfside Beach, South Carolina. After breakfast, instead of heading right to school, Marley told her friends she was going to pick up "Jeremy," a 22-year-old man she had met several weeks earlier on the beach, to drive him to his home in the Garden City Beach area of Georgetown County. She told her friends she was then going to head to class. She never arrived.

Police later released surveillance images of the 16-year-old at a local bank where she reportedly withdrew less than $100 from her account. Officials maintained the teen left on her own and was not under any duress.
