A missing teenage girl with autism has been found safe and sound.

Police say 16-year-old Natalie Woolerton went missing last Wednesday. They believe she voluntarily left her home in Ocean City in her mother's car even though she does not have any driving experience.

Police announced she was found safe and sound in Mesquite, Texas around 3:30 a.m. on Monday. Investigators say she was found by a police officer in Mesquite who was investigating a suspicious vehicle. The officer identified the vehicle as the one that Woolerton reportedly took from her mother.

While police say the teen is safe, they have not yet revealed any details regarding her whereabouts over the last five days.
