ATLANTA (AP) — Police in Georgia say a teenage girl believed to have been kidnapped by an armed man has been found unharmed.

News outlets report that Atlanta police say 17-year-old Carolyn Redding was reportedly kidnapped Tuesday night in Atlanta. She was found early Wednesday morning. It’s unclear who found the girl or where she was found.
