MONCKS CORNER, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say a 15-year-old runaway has been found safe following an investigation by the Moncks Corner Police Department which led to the arrest of two men.

Investigators announced Friday evening that Dana Sweazy has been found and is back home with her parents.

Sweazy was last known to be staying at a mobile home on Highway 17-A in Moncks Corner on Friday.  Investigators had earlier arrested 17-year-old Collin Jenkins and 20-year-old Trevhon Brown.

According to police, Jenkins and Brown picked Sweazy up from Berkeley High School on Thursday.

When police asked Jenkins and Brown where they took her, they first told police they took Sweazy to the Fox Bank neighborhood, before later admitting they had taken her to the mobile home.  Police then went to the mobile home where they found clothes appearing to belong to Sweazy, but she had already left.

Police arrested the duo and charged them with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and obstruction of justice.
