The 14-year-old Tennessee girl who vanished more than two weeks ago was reportedly found Tuesday with a convicted sex offender she met online.
Hayleigh Wilson and 41-year-old Benjamin Shook were located by the U.S. Marshals Service in a trailer park in Smyth County, Va., WCYB.com reported. The station reported that the teen was living off apples and spring water for the past week and a half.
"They were actually in pretty good shape and I think they had a little more to eat than that," a Smyth County Sheriffs Department information officer said. "Once we got into their backpacks, we found some canned items like oatmeal, so they were eating a little better than apples."
Wilson was taken, with her parents, to a child advocacy center for an interview before she was returned home.
The two reportedly met on an online app called Kik, WTVR.com reported. The station reported that the app is popular for sexting.
Wilson disappeared on June 22 when police said she took her father's Ford Explorer to pick up Shook. Federal, state and local authorities took part in the search after an Amber Alert was issued.
The two were spotted at a North Carolina Walmart on June 23 apparently buying tenting equipment. They were last seen the same day at about 5 p.m. at an Exxon station in Sugar Grove, Va.
Shook has been detained on failing to register as a sex offender.
