Missing teen returned to family, father says

A teenager in need of medication, who was reported missing Sunday in Bibb County, was returned home safely early Tuesday.

Sheriff's deputies brought 14-year-old Zaynah Elizabeth Head home to her family at about 3 a.m., her father said.

A woman in the 2300 block of Charlene Terrace contacted Head's parents after the teen showed up at her home.

Zaynah told the woman that her parents were looking for her and Bibb deputies responded to the home on Charlene Terrace just before 2:00AM, according to an updated news release.

Zaynah left home in the 500 block of Chickamuga Drive about 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon, her mother told officials.

Bibb Sheriff's Lt. Cornelius Pendleton worked tirelessly in tracking down the teen, her father said.
