Authorities found a missing teenager Tuesday night in Catawba County.
Catawba County sheriff's deputies found 14-year-old Kaitlyn Coronodo after she left her foster home in western Lincoln County over the weekend.
A foster parent told Lincoln County law enforcement officers that Coronodo was in her bedroom around 6 a.m. Saturday. The parent said Coronodo's bedroom window was open at 10 a.m. Saturday and the teen was missing.
Authorities believe Coronodo may have tried to travel back to the home of one of her biological parents in the Hickory area.
Coronodo returned to the foster home.
