A 16-year-old who went missing from Northfield was found in Wisconsin, and a man has been arrested in connection to her disappearance.

The girl went missing Thursday night, with Northfield Police Department saying there was "serious concern" for her welfare.

The teenager with special needs was found Saturday evening in a River Falls, Wisconsin, apartment, police said in an update Sunday. She was taken to a local hospital to be checked out, but now she's safe and with her parents, police added.

“This is going to be the best New Year's I've ever had. ... Again, thank you to everybody who helped. I can't thank you enough,” the teenager's mom told FOX 9.

A 36-year-old man was arrested and booked into jail for child enticement, police said. KSTP is reporting he's accused of meeting the teenager online and luring her to his home, adding he could be formally charged this week.

If the man is convicted, he could face up to 25 years in prison and a $100,000 fine, police said.
