Missing girl found

By Katherine Wartell

A 15-year-old from Emmett reported missing on May 21 was found Thursday in Topeka.

Pottawatomie County detectives said Savanna Kochianek ran away from home in the overnight hours of May 21. Her disappearance launched an area-wide search, though deputies suspected from the start that Kochianek was a possible runaway.

Detectives said they traced her to Topeka, where she was found three days after she went missing.
