A 15-year-old San Tan Valley girl has been located after an alleged kidnapping was reported Tuesday morning.

Tim Gaffney with the Pinal County Sheriff's Office said Samantha White left home for school Tuesday morning in the Circle Cross Ranch area and a short time later the girl's aunt left to go for a walk and discovered her school books and backpack scattered on the sidewalk in front of the residence.

There was reportedly also a note left indicating she was possibly kidnapped.

A check with the school confirmed White did not arrive Tuesday morning, Gaffney said.

White was reportedly located wandering in the neighborhood.

Detectives said they are not looking for any suspects related to the case.

Check back for updates.
