A Wisconsin girl who had been missing, has now been found in Connecticut.

Sixteen year-old Evelyne Fischer was missing for almost 2-weeks.

She was located in Clinton, where police say she was staying there with a friend.

Clinton officers say they received a call, informing them that the girl was in town, and giving them the address where she was located.

Police say she is safe, and her family has been notified, along with the state Department of Children and Families.

Investigators are still looking for a 20-year-old man who allegedly came from Wisconsin with her.

Tyler Hand faces charges in Wisconsin including sexual assault of a child and use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.

Police say the teenage girl and the Meriden man met online. He allegedly traveled to Wisconsin, and came back to Connecticut with her by bus.
