A teen that has been missing since Friday, Nov. 30, has been located.

According to Austin Police Chief Brian Krueger, 16-year-old Gracie Schlomann of Woodstock, Minnesota, was found safe on Tuesday between 6-6:30 p.m.

Because of Schlomann’s age, Krueger could not provide any further information.

Schlomann went missing at about 7:36 p.m. on Nov. 30, the last time Gerard Academy staff saw her in the wooded area near Gerard Academy and the Jay C. Hormel Nature Center. She was also seen on video surveillance footage at Kwik Trip No. 250 on 10th Place Northeast taken shortly after she left.

Schlomann’s father told police that she has gone missing before, but no more than a few hours before contacting someone, and that being missing this long was “out of character.”
