Winnipeg police say a 16-year-old girl who went missing more than a week ago has been found and is safe.

The girl had been last reported seen on Jan. 3 in the West Kildonan neighbourhood. Police said at the time they were concerned for her well-being. 

On Wednesday, police issued a news release saying she was located.

An earlier version of this story contained the girl's name and photo. For privacy reasons, it was removed once she was found.
