JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Jacksonville teen was found safe Monday after she abruptly ran away from home over the weekend.

Her parents say Kyleigh Kosters, 13, was last seen at home in Mandarin at 11 p.m. Saturday. She was gone the following morning.

The teenager stuffed pillows under her bed covers to make it appear as though she was sound asleep. In reality, she snuck out at some point before 7:45 a.m. Sunday.

On Sunday, the teen's adoptive mother posted her daughter's image on Facebook, imploring the public to help find her child. The post has been shared over 750,000 times.
