A group of psychics met at the Kentucky home of a missing 17-year-old on Thursday night as part of the investigation into her disappearance. The Franklin County sheriff says he was skeptical, but "did not want to leave any stone unturned" in the search for Haylee Marie Martin, the State Journal reports. "It's hard to believe," Chris Quire says, "but most agreed that we would find Haylee in a neighboring county by morning." They did. A call reporting a possible burglary brought police to a home in nearby Scott County, where they found the teenager. She was with a 21-year-old woman, trying to get inside the home of the woman's boyfriend.

Haylee had disappeared around Jan. 12, and the efforts to find her included a search by air, per WDKY. No arrests have been made, but Quire said adults who helped hide her could face charges. Haylee is in foster care now. "We are just glad she was found and is safe," the sheriff said. (More missing person stories.)
