— Goldsboro police say they have found a 14-year-old girl who went missing Tuesday after she got into a dark-colored Jeep Cherokee with unknown men.

Sgt. Dot Ardes sent an e-mail to the media announcing "case resolved," but did not offer any details about how Courtney Shay Champ was found.

When asked for more details, Ardes responded: "Courtney has been located and is back with her family." Ardes later added: "(She) appears to be okay. No charges are pending."

The teen is from Roper, but was living with her family at the Country Hearth Inn & Suites in Goldsboro this past week.

In their first news release, police said they believed she may have been with a 30-year-old man.
