OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday said its deputies were searching for a 17-year-old girl who went missing out of Kissimmee on Friday and is considered endangered, according to a news release.

Jessica Gabriella Madahan was last seen leaving her residence on Mickey Johnson Court around 6:40 a.m., not arriving to school or returning home, deputies said. A note was found in her bedroom “contemplating self harm,” the release said.

But on Sunday, deputies said Madahan was found unharmed and was returned to her home in good health.
