HAPPY CAMP, Calif. -- A 14-year-old girl reported missing and possibly endangered was reportedly found in Nevada on Thursday, according to the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office.

Happy Camp teen Kaylena Hope Bledsoe was last seen on Wednesday, and was believed to have left town with a 20-year-old man identified as James Montross [or Montross-Yunghams]. They likely left the area in a burgundy Chevrolet HHR with New York places.

"We have reason to believe the vehicle is traveling East. Probable cause exists to believe Kaylena is endangered and 'at risk,' and she is presumed to be the victim of possible exploitation by the male adult," Sheriff Jon Lopey said.

The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office issued a national "be on the lookout" broadcast to law enforcement agencies. The agency also anticipated that criminal charges would be filed against Montross.

A missing poster issued in the case said that they were believed to be heading into southern Oregon. The Sheriff's Office has not yet revealed how or where they were found in Nevada, but did indicate that both Bledsoe and Montross had been found.


EDIT: Updated to reflect that Bledsoe is no longer considered missing.
