Missing county girl found in OKC

CHICKASHA — A missing 15-year-old Tuttle girl was found Thanksgiving night in Oklahoma City, police confirmed Friday.

Falon Shatwell, who had been missing since Nov. 13, was transported to her Tuttle home by Tuttle Police Thursday, Officer Andrew Graham said Friday.  

Graham did not say if the girl had been harmed, but he said Tuttle Police would release more information about the case Monday.

Tuttle Assistant Police Chief Bill Boyd said last week that Shatwell, a freshman at Tuttle High School, was believed to be a runaway.

Last Monday, Tuttle police sent information about the case to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

In the days after her disappearance, Shatwell made several calls to her biological father, asking him to come and pick her up, but he told her he couldn't since it went against a custody agreement, Boyd said.

After Shatwell's father refused to pick her up, Boyd said, she quit calling.

The phone, which was given to her by her biological father, was presumably still with Shatwell.

 but Boyd said when he called the number, it sent him straight to voice mail.
