A 14-year-old Richland County girl reported missingh by her family has been found.
Tylena Brown was located Tuesday evening, the sheriff’s department said. She was taken to a local hospital for observation, said department spokesman Curtis Wilson.
The last time anyone saw Tylena Brown was when the 14-year-old got off her school bus on the 1400 block of Longcreek Drive around 4:20 p.m. Monday. The area is just south of I-20 near the Broad River.
Never miss a local story.
Now her family and Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott are appealing to the public for help in finding her.
The African American teenager is described as standing about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 112 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, pink Converse sneakers, a blue zip-up sweatshirt and carrying a black book bag, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
Tylena is very close to her family, Lott said, so her disappearance is out of character and of great concern.
