In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, Pennsylvania State Police said Alex Reyes, 14, “may be at risk for harm or injury” and was last seen in Wilkes-Barre with Reynaldo Mercado, 31, on Friday.

According to The Times Leader, a publication that hones in on Wilkes-Barre, Reyes was found safely last night.

Sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity since they were not authorized to speak on the matter, said that West New York police found Reyes and Mercado late last night.

The teen was returned safely to her family, while Mercado is being held at the Hudson County Correctional Facility in Kearny, sources said.

The Times Leader also reported that Wilkes-Barre police are investigating a homicide that occurred early Friday.
