A teen from Columbiana County who has been missing since last week has been found Thursday afternoon.

St. Clair Township Police Chief Brian McKenzie confirmed with 21 News that 15-year-old Ericka Heaton, who was last seen on May 9, 2024 was found in Beaver County, Pennsylvania Thursday.

Chief McKenzie tells us Heaton has since been charged as an unruly juvenile and will be transported to a juvenile detention facility.

Additionally, Chief McKenzie says more charges could possibly be pending against others involved in this case, but Heaton is the only one charged so far.

According to a police report, Heaton left her home in the 15000 block of Lois Lane at some point on May 9 while an adult male was watching her.

Police checked the Lois Lane home and the home of Heaton's boyfriend but she wasn't at either location. Officers took a report from Heaton's father who told officers that he found a note in his daughter's bedroom with an email and phone pin written on it.
