Makayla Mattei, 15, who was reported to Prince William County police as missing and endangered on February 20, was located safe and unharmed in the Harrisonburg area a short time ago.

Makayla was found in the company of Meiti Metsla, 21, who has since been arrested for a Prince William County police felony charge of using a communication device to solicit certain offenses involving children. During the investigation into Makayla’s disappearance, detectives learned of inappropriate online conversations involving Metsla, police said.

Arrangements are currently being made to reunite Makayla with her family in Dumfries.
