Missing Tennessee Teen Found Alive 2 Weeks After She Disappeared
Savannah Pruitt, 14, is safe and in custody.
A missing Tennessee teen has been found safe in Wisconsin two weeks after she vanished.
Savannah Pruitt disappeared from her home in Madisonville on Jan. 13. At the time, her parents maintained that she had no reason to run away, with her adoptive father, Randall Pruitt, telling reporters that Savannah “never misbehaved" and that her disappearance was “way out in left field for her.”
“It’s like having your soul ripped out of your body,” Pruitt said, according to WVLT-TV. “You can’t think, you can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you can’t rest – life has just ceased for us since she left.”
Pruitt has since been arrested. "We don't believe at this time that he had any connections to her being a runaway or missing," Monroe County Sheriff Tommy Jones said.
Police said she was safe and in custody Thursday night.
Pruitt is being held on no bond and is expected to appear in court Tuesday.
