Missing North Carolina Girl Found Alive After One Year
A North Carolina teenager who disappeared more than a year ago has been found alive in Georgia and a 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the case.
Hailey Burns, now 17, has been reunited with her parents after being found overnight at a home in Duluth, about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta.
The suspect, Michael Ren Wysoloyski, faces a number of charges, including cruelty to children and false imprisonment.
Burns vanished from her home in Ballantyne, an upscale part of Charlotte, in May 2016. At that time, her father told local media that his daughter left behind a diary that detailed plans to run away with a man she had met online.
