A HAPPY ENDING 

Runaway teen finally returns home okay.

Hazel Morgan sleeps a little bit easier these days. Last week, her 17-year-old daughter, Erica Morgan-Shoemake, returned home. Morgan now reports that Erica is receiving counseling and that the two are in the process of putting their lives back together.

"I'm still a little confused," says Morgan. "She hasn't opened up and said where she was staying, but I'm just glad to see that she's okay."

The Flyer reported on March 15th that Erica, a Central High School student, had disappeared on November 20th without leaving any indication where she had gone. After talking with several of Erica's friends, Morgan learned that Erica had been dating an older man and might be staying with him and several other adults in a Tipton County home. Morgan reported Erica to the police department for vagrancy and told officers that she might be staying in the Tipton County home. Police were dispatched to the home several times but were unable to find Erica.

"The police have not dropped the case, but they can't do anything unless Erica tells them who she was with," says Morgan. "Right now, they haven't talked with Erica about anything." n
