Silver Alert for Taylor County teen canceled
A Silver Alert for a Taylor County teenager was cancelled when she turned herself in to law enforcement on Tuesday afternoon, said Sgt. Michael Baylous, spokesman for the West Virginia State Police.
Authorities issued the alert after Shawna Ann Way, 14, was believed to have gone missing over the weekend. The mentally challenged teen had last been seen on Sunday.
Further details of her disappearance were not immediately available. "However, this case should serve as a reminder that the internet poses certain dangers for our children, as it is believed that social media played a role in her disappearance," Baylous said.
