A 19-year-old woman from Ringgold who was reported missing earlier this week was found safe with her boyfriend in Alabama today, police said.

Caitlin Patterson last was seen in an East Ridge store when she called her family to pick her up, but then left her keys in her car and disappeared.

East Ridge police said she was found unhurt, but her boyfriend Robert Morris will be charged with violating probation and in connection with a hit-and-run traffic accident in Fort Oglethorpe.

The accident happened on Friday before Patterson went missing.
