The Lufkin Police Department thanked the public late Thursday for its help in locating a Lufkin teen.
Prior to being found, Johana Guardado, 15, had last been seen on surveillance video being picked up in a silver 2012 Chevrolet car with license plate NRX-5891 at a Chevron station near Lufkin High School Monday morning, according to a press release from Jessica Pebsworth, communications director for the city of Lufkin. Johana didn't attend classes Monday after her mother dropped her off at school around 8 a.m.
Police believed Johana might have been in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, visiting a friend and didn't think she was in danger, the release stated.
The department didn't provide any details on where the teen was found.
