Police are investigating after a missing Columbiana County teen was found in Pennsylvania.

Tonight, 19-year-old Chelsea Stofen is home with her family in Salineville.

Police and family searched for more than 50 hours for Stofen until they received a 911 call from her out of Ambridge, Pa. Police were able to keep her on the phone long enough for officers to arrive at the scene.

“Only a miracle could have gave them the leads this quick that they had received,” said Nicol Richter, Stofen’s mother.

Richter told police that her daughter left with a man she met online and didn't return home on Tuesday.

Officials said that man is in custody. Charges had not been officially filed against him as of Friday afternoon.
