Mercer County teenager located in North Carolina

PRINCETON — A Mercer County teenager who has been missing since Aug. 23, was located Wednesday morning at a North Carolina apartment complex, according to Cpl. S.A. Sommers of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department.

Adreanna Hamby, 17, of Green Valley, had made contact with someone in the area, and from that contact, law enforcement officers were able to trace her whereabouts to the Charlotte/Mechlenburg County, N.C. area. Sommers said on Monday, he made contact with several apartment complex managers in that area and sent them copies of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children poster.

Sommers said he received a call from one of the apartment managers this morning, saying that Hamby was in her office. “She’s safe and in a secure facility,” Sommers said.
