An 18-year-old Ohio woman was found safe Saturday six days after her mother reported her missing.

Madison Bell, of Greenfield, disappeared after telling her mother she was going to a tanning salon that had reopened after Ohio coronavirus lockdown measures were lifted for some businesses.

Her car was found abandoned in a church parking lot that deputies cordoned off as a crime scene.

The announcement that she had been located and was safe was made around 6:30 a.m. Saturday by Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera.


Bell was a graduating senior.

Barerra said she left home “to start a new life,” the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

He said law enforcement tracked her down at a location that was not local, according to the paper.

Barerra said Bell was not considered a runaway because she is an adult.


On Thursday, Barerra’s office released a photo of a man with a scruffy beard who they said was wanted for questioning in the disappearance.

Bell’s family asked for privacy “during this difficult time while we are emotionally raw,” Fox 19 Cincinnati reported.
