ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WKRG) The family of a missing Kentucky teenager will arive in Baldwin County Thursday morning, hours after she was found safe by U.S. Marshals at a Walmart Neighborhood Market in Orange Beach.

Lauryn Sizemore, 16, disappeared from Dawson Springs, KY on Saturday. She was found with her step-grandfather, Glenn Harper, 56, more than 570 miles from her home.

“About 15 minutes ago I received a phonecall. Glenn Harper and Lauryn Sizemore are in custody,”  Dawson Springs Police Chief Mike Opalek told a crowd at a prayer vigil on Wednesday.

A lieutenant with the Orange Beach, Alabama Police Department confirms Harper’s cellphone led them to the Walmart.
