A 14-year-old girl last seen leaving Sheffield High School on April 8 was found in New York State Sunday morning.

Troopers said in an update posted late Sunday night that the Cuba, NY police department and New York State Police found Latesia Rae Pierce, 14, and said “she has been turned over to the care of Children and Youth Service of Pennsylvania.”
