Missing Hanover-area teen found
A missing Hanover-area teenager has been found and is safe, according to West Manheim Township Police.
The family of Madison Krumrine, 16, of West Manheim Township confirmed in a separate Facebook post Tuesday evening that the girl has been found.
"Thanks to law enforcement, Madison was found and is being treated," was the message posted on the Missing Madison Krumrine Facebook page.
"We are so relieved and have no words besides thank you to the community and the law enforcement agencies for finding our girl!" the family posted. "Thank you to everyone, we could not have done this without you."
Madison, a student at Southwestern High School, had last been seen around 8:30 p.m. Thursday at her home, police said. She left behind her cellphone and laptop computer, her father has said.
Keith Krumrine said Tuesday evening in a Facebook post that police have only told the family that Madison has been located and she is safe, and they hope to see her within a couple of days.
Krumrine added that the family doesn't know even what state Madison was found in or who she was with.
"The FBI, US Marshals, West Manheim Police have been amazing," he wrote. "The social media and fb family, I can never show you enough gratitude and love for you all."
West Manheim Township Police asked in a Saturday Facebook post for the public's assistance finding Madison, saying they believed she had willingly left home.
Social-media postings from Madison's family and family friends indicate they doubt that scenario.
Hundreds of people spent hours searching the area around Madison's West Manheim Township home Sunday afternoon but found no clues to explain her disappearance, her father said.
"She basically disappeared off the face of the earth," Keith Krumrine said of his daughter.
The police department said more information will be released at a later date.
A call to action was on the Missing Madison Krumrine Facebook page Tuesday morning, urging readers to request local lawmakers call in the state police and the FBI to assist on the case.
After the post saying Madison had been found, all other posts on that page were deleted, and a notice was put up that the page would be deleted Wednesday morning.
The Missing Madison Krumrine Facebook page, which indicated it was a "family official" page, asked readers Tuesday to contact state Sen. Richard Alloway, R-York, Adams and Franklin counties, and state Rep. Kate Klunk, R-Hanover.
"Ask them to get the state police and FBI missing persons involved in finding Madison," the post urged.
Contacted by The York Dispatch, Klunk said she had been in contact with local law enforcement and had been assured that all appropriate resources were being used.
Jeremy Shoemaker, Alloway's chief of staff, confirmed the senator's office was getting calls asking for help.
Alloway contacted the York County District Attorney's Office, which was aware of the case and assured him that everything possible was being done to find Madison, he said.
