Waukesha County sheriff's deputies say a missing teenager has been found safe in Chicago.

15-year-old Kathryn Stalbaum of The Town of Genesee vanished Tuesday morning.

She missed her bus and texted to a friend saying she would ride her bike to school. But she never showed up for class.

This evening, she reportedly approached a Chicago police office and asked for help.

Sheriff's deputies say it's not clear how she got there and whether she went on her own or was taken against her will.

Investigators and her parents are headed to Chicago to try to determine the circumstances of her disappearance and time she was missing.
