A Hastings teen that went missing last week is now in the custody of Health and Human Services.

Police say 14 year old Jozie Mattison was found at a Hastings residence around 7:15 P.M. on Friday night.

She was reported missing late Wednesday night.

Sergeant Jim Baldwin with Hastings Police says a tip lead them to a home in the 2700 block of West 3rd street.

They had previously searched the home and come up empty.

Sgt. Baldwin said it appears another minor was helping to hide the teen after she ran away from home.

Mattison is not being returned to her parents because she threatened to continue to run away.
