BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Officers say 15-year-old Jada Butler has been located and is now safely at home.

A missing person's report was issued for Butler after she was last seen leaving her Biloxi home on Jan. 15 at 5:21 p.m.

According to authorities, the teen ran away due to a dispute over disciplinary actions with her parents. Maj. Chris DeBack says Butler called officers herself to reveal her location after seeing the missing person's report.

The Butler family also issued a notice stating that Jada is home safe.
