SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 News) – A South Jordan 16-year-old girl who has been missing 6-weeks is safe, police say.

On July 23, officers met with Lizzy and her attorney, Roger Hoole from Hoole & King L.C. Law Offices.

“At that time, we were able to verify Lizzy was safe, healthy, and that her needs were being met,” said South Jordan Police in their press release.
