JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson police have confirmed a missing teenager has been found safe in Florida. Brianna Ellis, 19, had been missing since New Year's Day.

Police say a sheriff's department in Florida was able to locate Ellis Saturday, but would not confirm where exactly in Florida she was found.

Authorities said the case is still under investigation, and they are not releasing information on whether Ellis was taken against her will.

Police had received little information this week about Ellis' disappearance or where she was last seen. Saturday, police asked the public for any information that could help locate the teen.

The 2011 Murrah High School graduate is also a former employee of Piccadilly's on Interstate 55 in Jackson.
