WINNECONNE, Wis. (WBAY) - The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office says it’s located a 15-year-old girl from Winneconne who was missing since early December.

Deputies say Aliyah Tritt is with investigators, who are assessing her welfare. Her family was notified.

Aliyah was last seen on December 5 and reported as a runaway the next day. She took three cats with her and prescription medicine.

Deputies say Aliyah was located “after a lengthy and extremely thorough” investigation. The sheriff’s office believed “a network of adults” was helping to conceal her whereabouts. A statement from the sheriff’s office earlier this month made a specific plea asking members of that network to call authorities and “respect the wishes of Aliyah’s family and her status as a juvenile.” She was also reported as a runaway in a national database, the National Crime Information Center.

The sheriff’s office says it won’t release any further information about the case.
