Zumbrota teenager missing for nearly 2 weeks found safe


A teenage girl from southeastern Minnesota who has been missing for nearly two weeks has been found unharmed, KTTC reports.

Jaid Marx, 17, of Zumbrota, was located Tuesday evening in Owatonna, which is about 40 miles southwest of her hometown. Her mother, Leah Marx, posted a brief message on her Facebook page late Tuesday afternoon, saying "Jaid has been found unharmed!"

Marx disappeared Oct. 30 after leaving her job at a Zumbrota coffee shop located just blocks from her house. At the time she went missing, police said they didn’t suspect foul play, and authorities say it's unlikely there will be any arrests or charges in the case, according to the Red Wing Republican Eagle.

There were reported sightings of Marx in Wisconsin and Lake City last week, according to the paper.

The Lake City Police Department, Goodhue County Sheriff's Office, Wabasha County Sheriff's Office, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and Owatonna Police Department all worked on the search for Marx, KTTC reports. No other information about the case has been released.

The Zumbrota Police Department issued a statement thanking members of the public for their help with the search.
