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.

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.
