WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KTRE) - A 14-year-old Timpson girl who was reported missing from a local Amber Alert system has been found safe, according to League City authorities.

According to a League City press release, a tip was called in to police in Wichita Falls around 8:45 a.m. Friday, advising them that the car described in the Amber Alert was parked on the side of the road. Police located the car and found Andrea Fox and James Dean Martin, 20, asleep inside the vehicle.

Her mother, Dion Schoening, said she was on the way to see Fox.

Wichita Falls Police have questioned Fox and are holding Martin for questioning, according to League City Police.

Sgt. Joe Snyder of Wichita Falls said no charges have been filed, which is contradictory to a League City Police spokeswoman saying a charge of harboring a runaway will be filed on Martin.

"We're working with League City Police to determine if and where any laws were broken," Snyder said. "I expect something will be done this afternoon."

According to Snyder, a tipster saw the billboard about 1.5 miles before he saw the vehicle.

"We appreciate citizens' focus on our signs and it just shows how well this system works," Snyder said.

Fox was last seen about 1 a.m. Tuesday in League City, which is in Galveston County, near Houston.
