SECOND TEEN FOUND SAFE
The Stephens County Sheriff's office had been searching for 15-year-old Graci Parks since her disappearance in May.
Sheriff Randy Shirley announced late last week that Parks had been found in Belleville, Illinois.
Shirley said Parks was currently in the custody of the Bellville Police Department and would be interviewed by local authorities upon her return to Georgia.
Authorities say there is evidence that an acquaintance picked up the teenager.
Shirley went on to say that investigators are searching through electronic equipment to find more information on the acquaintance. Evidence from Parks' residence in Toccoa is also being analyzed by the GBI Crime Lab.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children assisted Stephens County in the search efforts.
