---- — SIGOURNEY — The 13-year-old girl reported missing from Hedrick on Monday has been found.

The teenager, Hunter Kopp, was located at a Sigourney residence around 10 p.m. Wednesday, said Keokuk County Sheriff Deputy Jeff Runnells.

"The officers last night got a tip, went to the residence, found here there and turned her over to her father," said Runnells, who also noted he was unaware of the circumstances surrounding the situation.

Kopp had last been seen leaving Hedrick around 6 p.m. Monday and was reported missing by her father Tuesday morning. Runnells was able to pinpoint Kopp's phone through U.S. Cellular as being in the Ottumwa area Tuesday morning.
