The 15-year-old Concord girl who was reported missing after she was last seen leaving for school Wednesday morning, has been located. 

Caterina Maria Altadonna was last seen leaving her home on River Oaks Drive NW for school at Cox Mill High School around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday.

The Concord Police Department located  Altadonna with her boyfriend at a residence in Kannapolis.

Caterina is safe and has been returned to her mother.

The boyfriend said that Altadonna voluntarily left her residence with him on May 29 and he operates a burgundy Toyota Sequoia that was at the residence where she was located.

During the police investigation there was never any evidence to suggest that Altadonna was abducted, taken against her will or was otherwise in any danger.

Altadonna contacted her mother after being reported missing and had purposely discarded her phone to prevent herself from being located.

The investigation did prove that Altadonna left voluntarily on her own accord to be with someone whom she has a personal relationship with.
