Missing mother of 2 found in VA

Posted: Updated:

A missing mother of two from Alexander County was found in Bassett, Virginia Tuesday. Investigators say Steffie Meagan Adams, 25, is OK.

Family members reported Adams missing on October 12. They told the Alexander County Sheriff's Office they had not heard from her since September.

During the investigation, authorities said they had outstanding warrants for Adams' arrest for Probation Violation. Her Probation Officer last saw her in late August. Investigators believe Adams fled when she learned about the warrants.

Authorities say they put Adams into a national database as a missing person, and used local and regional media to help get her information out to the public.

Investigators initially believed Adams was en route to Missouri, where she has family, but again, she was found in Virginia, and is safe.

No other information has been released at this time as to how Adams was located. Investigators did send their appreciation saying, "The Alexander County Sheriff's Office wishes to thank everyone who assisted in this investigation by posting information about Steffie's disappearance and providing information about her possible whereabouts".
