Karianna Cabello 


The 13-year-old girl reported missing on July 23 was found by authorities over the weekend and returned to her home.

Karianna Cabello was found after authorities pulled over a vehicle on I-85 and found her in the passenger’s seat. According to Investigator Ryan Foles with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, authorities were able to determine Cabello was hitchhiking, and through investigative means, were able to track her down.

Cabello was last seen at her home on Corn Crib Court in Newnan, and it is not known what time she left, but she did not take any extra clothes, her cell phone or any money.

Foles said Cabello was without food and shelter for about three days, but was otherwise fine.

After returning Cabello to her home, Foles said, investigators sat down and spoke to her and her mother about the dangers of hitchhiking and human trafficking, and how to prevent running away. This was the second time Cabello has fled her home, he said.
