A missing 17-year-old Evanston teenager was located in good health on Monday evening.

Alishianna A. Harris, of the 1600 block of Thelin Court, was last seen leaving her residence on Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release.

Harris left in the afternoon after she returned from school and was not at home when her parents arrived after work, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. The teen was located in Midlothian, Illinois, which is about an hour’s drive south of Evanston. The Midlothian Police Department located Harris after a call from a citizen.

The 17-year-old has left home unexpectedly before, Dugan said. In the past, however, Harris has usually called a relative while out on her own. She had not called since she left home last week, he said.
