Made­lyn Rose Pa­trick, 14, went miss­ing from the Port De­posit area at about 9:30 p.m. on Wed­nes­day but was found un­harmed at about 7:45 p.m. on Thurs­day, a few hours af­ter the sher­iff’s depart­ment asked for the pub­lic’s help in lo­cat­ing her, said Cpl. Michael Kalin­sky with the Ce­cil County Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

“We got tips very quickly,” Kalin­sky said. “She’s on her way back to her mom right now.”

Sher­iff’s depart­ment of­fi­cials had pre­vi­ously said that they didn’t be­lieve Pa­trick was in any dan­ger but that she may have been in the Wilm­ing­ton, Del., area and that they were work­ing with the Wilm­ing­ton Po­lice
