An Oklahoma girl missing for nearly four months is safe. 16-year-old Amanda Rauch disappeared from Skiatook in April.

She showed up at a police station in North Carolina Thursday. Rauch told police Gary Patterson had kidnapped her, threatening her and her family if she did not come with him.

Patterson has been arrested. He'll be brought to Oklahoma to face kidnapping and related charges.
