Missing Brownsville teenager was found safe at a residence on the 1200 block of Araiza Street Thursday.

According to Lt. Alan Gonzalez with the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Department, a tip was made to their department on the whereabouts of 17-year-old Amber Mallett.

Mallet was reported missing from Brownsville since July 25. The Center for Missing and Exploited Children put out a notification asking for the public's assistance.

She was located with her boyfriend.

Child Protective Services was called and they took her into custody. She was returned to foster care in Brownsville.

Lt. Gonzalez urges everyone to report anything they feel is suspicious or maybe uncomfortable with. Once reports are made investigators look into the case.

Because reports were made Mallett was found safe, sheriff officials said.
