Missing Kuwaiti teen found safe in Nebraska

A Kuwaiti teen who disappeared during a Florida vacation has been found safe in Nebraska. The Lincoln County sheriff's office says 15-year-old Eman Mohammad Alsayegh had been living for the past week with a 16-year-old McCook boy whom she met online.

A member of the boy's family turned her in to police late Tuesday. Sheriff Jerome Kramer says no crime was involved, but urges young adults and their parents to use caution when meeting people over the Internet.

Kramer says the girl will be reunited with her family as soon as possible. The sheriff's office said last Thursday it was working with Florida authorities to find the girl.

Authorities believed she took a bus to Omaha and was headed to North Platte to meet an online friend.
