A teenager that had been missing for nearly a week was found safely last night according to Farmington Police Chief Kenneth Charles. 13-year-old Mckenzee Wheeler was located near downtown Farmington on the evening of May 18. Charles said there have been a number of similar incidences within the past month, that may or may not be related to a rise in “mischief”.
“It’s a scary situation when kids are actively evading family, and us. Every indication shows that she was not at an immediate risk, but that circumstance can change in a minute,” Charles said.
