A 16-year-old girl reported missing last week was spotted walking alone in uptown Charlotte over the weekend. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say Ayanna Hatcher was reported missing around 8:50 p.m. Thursday from Faulconbridge Lane. Hatcher was spotted walking alone near E 7th Street and N McDowell Street Saturday. Police say she was wearing red denim shorts and a multicolored shirt. 

"Miss. Hatcher has been diagnosed with a cognitive issue and there is some concern for her safety and wellbeing," police say.

When Hatcher was reported missing from Faulconbridge Lane, she was wearing a different outfit. Police say she was wearing an orange colored scarf wrapped around her hair in a bun, a black tank top, beige tribal-print leggings, and was carrying a pink backpack.
