WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WRAL) — Authorities cancelled the statewide Amber Alert for a missing 15-year-old Forsyth County girl from earlier this week. Cassidy Ann Bottoms was found safe in Sanford, according to police.

Bottoms is 5 feet 1 inches tall and weighs about 115 pounds. She has black hair and hazel eyes, and she was last seen wearing a black tube top with a v cut, pink, gray and blue palm tree leggings and black Converse shoes. Bottoms has a scar on her left lower lip, authorities said.

Authorities said she was last seen in the 800 block of Old Oak Hollow Road in Winston-Salem and was believed to be traveling with 24-year-old Deshawn Dante Townes and 20-year-old Joffey Lee Cutler in a silver Nissan Altima.

Townes surrendered himself and the Nissan Altima to Sanford police late Thursday morning. He will not face charges, authorities said.
