CLAYTON, N.C. (WNCN) – A Raleigh woman was arrested Wednesday morning after a 16-year-old girl reported missing in July was found last month on the other side of the country, police said.
Angela Marie Warner, 44, was charged with felony child abduction. She was accused of helping the teenager run away by concealing her whereabouts and helping to facilitate her transportation across state lines, according to a news release.

Warner is the mother of the girl’s boyfriend.
On Sept. 13, Clayton police, U.S. Marshals, and Johnston County authorities located the teen in Portland. She was placed in protective custody.
Warner was booked into the Johnston County Jail on a $35,000 bond.
