"Julia Mann has been located," the post said. "She appears to be safe and local authorities have been notified. We will not release any further at this time. Please respect her privacy and be respectful to a teenage girl and her family. Thank you for your concern and your assistance in finding Julia."

Julia disappeared from her home on Feb. 20. Authorities said it appears she left alone. The FBI, Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Georgia State Patrol were involved in the investigation.

In a Feb. 26 post, Oconee County Sheriff Scott Berry pleaded for Julia to call him and said authorities wanted to make sure she's safe. He said she's not in trouble with the law but authorities wanted to talk to her.

Reward money related to her case was repeatedly increased.
