RICHLAND COUNTY (WACH) - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says a missing 16-year-old has been found unharmed.
Authorities say Mariah Carrion was located and taken into custody around 12 p.m. Monday.
Lott says she was found at the home of "an acquaintance" in Columbia.
The investigation is ongoing to determine if charges will be filed in this case.
Carrion was reported missing last Tuesday after her father returned from work to find a letter saying she was leaving.
Investigators will question the acquaintance of Mariah to determine the proper course of action, according to Lott.
