KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – East Tennessee Valley Crime Stoppers say a missing teen who could be in McMinn County after she was last seen nearly one month ago in Knoxville has been found safe.

Breonna Gardner, 17, ran away from Lake Brook Academy in Knoxville on Thursday, June 16 with another teen. The other missing girl was located in Lafayette, Tenn. previously. Gardner was found on August 2.

Gardner is described as standing 5’6″ tall, weighing 135 pounds with red hair and brown eyes. Investigators believe she is no longer in the Knoxville area and may be avoiding law enforcement.

At the time she went missing it was believed they were heading to either Athens, Tenn., or the Chattanooga area. Investigators said there was reason to believe Gardner may have been in the Riceville area of McMinn County.

An update from East Tennessee Valley Crime Stoppers said the concern for Gardner’s safety remained based on her lack of funds, transportation or place to stay. However, no evidence that she had been victimized or was in imminent danger was found at that point.

East Tennessee Valley Crime Stoppers recently marked one year since the organization began operation. Since then they have received thousands of tips and approved over $10,000 in reward money to tipsters.
