The 15 year old Penn Yan girl reported missing by family members earlier this week has been located by the Rochester Police Department.
Antonio Mendez is under the supervision of the state Office of Children and Family Resources and was wearing an ankle monitor before she disappeared. She cut off the monitor, which resulted in a warrant being issued for her. Mendez told her mom she was going to Eastview Mall with friends but police believed she was in the Rochester area instead. The teen had reached out to family through social media and stated she does not want to return home. After that information was learned police classified the case as a runaway and a person wanted on a warrant.
After being taken into custody, Mendez was transported to a juvenile facility in Rush.
