MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Nearly one week after going missing, police confirm that 16-year-old Marley McKenna Spindler has been found safe in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Spindler was found by the Mt. Pleasant Police Department in their jurisdiction at about noon on Wednesday, according to a news release from Horry County Police. "She is safe and will be reunited with her family as soon as possible," the release states "We are continuing to investigate this case to ensure we have a complete understanding of its facts and circumstances. The Horry County Police sincerely thank everyone who assisted in the search for McKenna. Additional information will be disseminated as it becomes available."

Spindler disappeared from Horry County on the morning of Thursday, August 20 after eating breakfast with her friends at Chick-Fil-A in Surfside Beach. Police say she picked up a friend on Ocean Boulevard, and did not arrive at Socastee High School for her first day of school. The friend, originally a person of interest in the case, was cleared by police late last week.

Police later released surveillance camera images of Spindler at a bank on Thursday, where she reportedly withdrew less than $100 from her account. Police maintained that she left alone, and was not under duress or coercion.

Shortly after she went missing, flyers were distributed by her family and concerned community members, and several HCPD detectives were assigned to her case. National news media, including NBC News and Nancy Grace, began covering her disappearance this week.
