DANVILLE -- A Danville teenager described as "at risk" by police was found safe at a friend's house Friday morning after a search effort to find her that started Thursday evening.
Earlier in the day, police launched a search party to find 15-year-old Madeline "Maddie" Langill, just hours after her family last saw her about 6 p.m. on Thursday when she left their Danville home, police said.
Police Chief Steve Simpkins Friday morning would not disclose the reasons the teenager was considered at high risk.
"We're very pleased with this outcome," Simpkins said. "This was the result of a combined effort, and I am very grateful for all the hard work that led to the successful resolution of this search."
Within hours of her family alerting police Thursday night that she was missing, a helicopter search was conducted and the search continued throughout the night.
Another helicopter search had been planned for Friday.
About 25 volunteers showed up Friday morning to help search for her and were all given assignments where to check, according to police.
An official search and rescue team was also enlisted and search dogs were expected to be brought in Friday morning.
