Baltimore Police said an autistic 16-year-old girl who went missing last week has been found.

Kennedi High, a student at Western High in Baltimore, reunited with her family, according to police.
"It's because of all of you," police said.
At a press conference Sunday, police spokesman T.J. Smith said police deal with multiple missing persons reports every day, but High's case presented additional causes for concern. Her family indicated that her autism might prevent her from questioning suspicious circumstances.
Smith explored a variety of theories, including the possibility that she was a victim of human trafficking.
