Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins announced on Wednesday afternoon, June 14 that two missing Grayson County juveniles had been found safe.
Chaffins said that on Tuesday, June 13, he was able to contact 17-year-old Stephanie Pelfrey via social media.
Pelfrey was reported missing on Jan. 3, 2017 from the Wilderness Drive area in Clarkson.
After a brief conversation, Pelfrey was advised to go to her local police station and let law enforcement see that she was safe, according to Chaffins.

Pelfrey was then released and eventually removed from the NCIC database as a missing person, according to Chaffins.
Pelfrey will turn 18 in a few days, and, Chaffins said, there was no “pickup order” on her.
Additionally, on Tuesday, June 13, Chaffins also confirmed that Dilion Hendricks was home safe with his family.
