    Her mother, Shemicko Frazier, told FOX13 Johniah was found inside a Bartlett store on Friday. The teenager is currently in police custody.

    “It’s possible, I’m praying it’s not but it’s possible cause she wasn’t the one that would venture out, be gone and not get in touch with family,” he said.

    Her mother said Johniah has never run away from home before.

    The Shelby County Sheriff's Office also confirmed Johniah was found on Friday. 

    SCSO deputies said a "citizen recognized her" and immediately notified authorities.
