A 16-year-old Rock Springs girl who was reported missing for several days earlier this month has been found and is safe, according to a release from the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Department.

Taylor Rae Haddock was reported missing from her home in Rock Springs by her family, who said she had last been seen on Dec.3. The sheriff's department last week asked for the public's help in finding her. At the time it was thought she could be in Rock Springs as well as Green River or Lander.

But on Dec.7 Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell issued a statement saying the girl had been found safe and sound in Rock Springs.

Lowell didn't release any further details except to say that both news media and social media reports had been a big help in finding the girl.
