Margaret Lee Clayton, 19, is the subject of a Silver Alert.

— A disabled Greenville teen was found late Thursday evening after being reported missing on Tuesday.

Margaret Lee Clayton, 19, was found near the Chili's Restaurant on Evans Street, according to WNCT. A family noticed her peeking through some shrubs and stayed with Clayton until help arrived.

Clayton's father told WITN they recently moved to Greenville from Goldsboro. "We just want Lee to come home," said Allen Clayton. "You never expect these things to happen."

Officials said Clayton admitted to running away from home. She was transported to the Vidant Medical Center.
