Missing Charlotte teen found safe in Georgia


Overnight, FBI Atlanta agents and detectives with the Gwinnett County Police Department recovered Hailey at a home located at 2723 Seneca Trail, NW, Duluth, Georgia. Included among those charges are aggravated sodomy, interference with custody, cruelty to children deprivation in the first degree, and false imprisonment.

Hailey Burns left her home more than a year ago according to authorities. She also sent the woman a picture taken from her window.

However, her mother says she still doesn't know what her daughter went through over the past year.

As reported by Fox News, the Federal Bureau of Investigation worked with detectives from the Gwinnett County Police Department in tracking Burns and Wysolovski down.

"You have to let go of the hope that she will just walk through the door", Shaunna Burns said in a recent interview.

Another neighbor told the station he saw the teen unloading groceries, and Burns waved back to say hello.

Burns' family members said that she suffers from Asperger's syndrome and left home without her medication.

According to WCNC-TV, the girl vanished after walking out of her home in June 2016.

Hailey had a smile on her face when Channel 9 went to their home Monday, but her parents said she is different now.

The night before she was found, Hailey's family received a message from a woman in Romania claiming she had been in contact with their daughter, WSB-TV reports.

Shortly after she vanished, her parents discovered a diary entry that indicated that she'd met an unidentified man online and meant to secretly meet up with him.

Many things about the case remain unclear, such as how the teen initially reached Wysolovski, as well as whether he held her the whole time in Duluth.

"We never gave up", the father Anthony Burns wrote.

Tony Burns was quoted by KARE11 as saying that he felt powerless when she disappeared.
