The Richland County Sheriff's Department has located a missing 17-year-old female said to have a serious medical condition.

Breanna Casapit had not been seen since just before midnight on April 30th when she left her home near Two Notch Road and Beltline Boulevard.

Sheriff's Sergeant Curtis Wilson says she made contact with her family, but would not reveal her location.  And Wilson says the teen requires medical treatments for a health condition that could be life-threatening.

This afternoon, a Crimestoppers tip helped authorities find Casapit and she was taken in for a medical evaluation.

This is not the first time the teen has run away.
