MESA – A missing and endangered teen has been found safe, said Mesa police Thursday morning.

Kassandra Monique Toruga was supposed to be home from school on Monday at about 3:30 p.m. but never arrived.

Toruga's family was especially concerned because the 17-year-old suffers from schizophrenia and had not taken her medication since Monday. In addition, she has reportedly tried to commit suicide in the past.

Details about Toruga's whereabouts for the past several days were not immediately available, but she reportedly is fine.
