BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) — A missing eastern Nebraska teenager has been found safe in Indianapolis.

Police in the Omaha suburb of Bellevue say 16-year-old Michaela Wells was taken into custody at a residence around 8:20 p.m. Thursday and was in good health.

A Bellevue police spokeswoman declined to say how the teenager got to Indianapolis and whether anyone else was involved. Bellevue officials have said they didn't think Michaela was in danger. The FBI and Indiana authorities helped find her.

Her parents say they last saw her Sunday night before she went outside to take out the trash.
