Tallassee girl located after missing nearly 2 weeks

TALLASSEE, AL (WSFA) -

A 14-year-old Tallassee girl who disappeared nearly two weeks ago has been found in the south Alabama city of Brewton, according to Tallassee Police Chief Jimmy Rodgers.

Kiara Neal was located around 1 p.m. Wednesday when a citizen spotted her on a roadway after recognizing her from media coverage. The citizen notified Tallassee police.

Rodgers says Neal is safe and has not been injured. Her family has been notified. 

It's not clear what Neal was doing in Brewton or who she was with, but members of the Tallassee Police Department are on their way to the city to continue their investigation and bring Neal home. 

One person has been arrested in connection to Neal's disappearance, and Chief Rodgers would not rule out more arrests.

On the day she was reported missing, Neal was seen on video leaving Tallassee High School and getting into an SUV with 30-year-old Willie Thomas.

Thomas was located and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and another felony associated with the case.

Police have been working to identify a person of interest who was seen talking to Neal at the Walmart on Ann Street in Montgomery. 

There were also unconfirmed sightings of Neal in Panama City, FL. 

Chief Rodgers stressed that parents need to know what their kids and teens are doing online, especially on social media. 

 "It can be a tool for people who have evil intentions," he said. 

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has subsequently canceled Neal's missing child alert, but did not provide any other details.
