A missing 16-year-old has been found safely in Mexico, according to police.

Karla Hernandez-Santiago, who was reported missing last week, traveled voluntarily to Mexico to visit family, according to a news release from Metro Nashville Police.

Investigators said Karla's mother asked her to run a quick errand around 1 p.m. Tuesday. When she hadn't returned by 2:30 p.m., her mother, Maribell Santiago, called police.

Officers say someone saw her cross Dickerson Pike near Queen Avenue in East Nashville and get into a four-door white car with a Hispanic male around 4:30 p.m.
