FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) - An Apopka, Florida teenager who was reported missing while on vacation in Washington state has been located.

FBI spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich said in a news release that 14-year-old Katelynn Barlow was found at a mall south of Seattle in Federal Way Thursday afternoon. The FBI said she appears healthy and unharmed but will be further assessed.

There have been no arrests. The investigation will continue to learn more about the circumstances of her disappearance.

Barlow was with her aunt and uncle, who have primary custody of her, when she disappeared Sunday night.

The family was in Big Lake, Washington when Barlow walked out of her family’s cabin to use the bathroom. She was wearing pajamas and no shoes.

Barlow’s cellphone was found off of Interstate 5, about 30 miles away from where the family had been staying.
