The Lockport Union Sun and Journal reports that the missing (or more aptly put, "runaway") Gasport girl has been found...

Police have found a 17-year-old girl from Gasport who had been reported missing earlier this week.

She was found in Medina on Monday with a man who reportedly harassed her parents.

The man, Lucas Williams of Medina, is wanted on charges of second-degree harassment in a warrant through Royalton Town Court.

A report said that while the girl’s father was filing information with the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office for a missing person report on Sunday night, Williams sent several threatening and vulgar text messages to the man and reportedly said he knew where the man’s daughter was.

According to reports, in one message, Williams told the victim he would shoot him, and in another, the suspect sent a photo of himself holding a gun aimed at the man’s daughter.

A report said this was not the first time the teen had run away from home to Medina.

Medina Police assisted in the investigation.
