COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A missing Cookeville teenager was found along a road within a mile of her house after an Amber Alert was issued overnight. 

Police said Kirsten Alcorn, 15, disappeared from her residence under suspicious circumstances between 8 and 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The parents of the 15-year-old arrived home but their daughter was missing, according to police.  The girl's younger brother was at the residence but said he was not aware his sister was gone.

The Cookeville Police Department issued an Amber Alert and notified the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and FBI.

At about 3:30 a.m. Thursday, a passing driver saw a girl lying along a road within a mile of Kirsten's home.  Officers arrived and discovered it was the missing 15-year-old, who was conscious and alert.

The victim was transported to the Cookeville Regional Medical Center but released Thursday morning.

Cookeville Police Department detectives are continuing to investigate this incident.
