UPDATE - 15-year-old Marissa Bolles was found in the presence of three females and three males in a trailer home in Lansing Township. Authorities say she was there voluntarily and the case was not an abduction.

On Thursday, the Ingham County Sheriff's Office was notified of a demand for ransom. They are investigating if Bolles took part in that demand. The Ingham County Prosecutor's Office will determine if charges will be filed.


Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth says Marissa Bolles has been found.

Deputies say the Delhi Twp. teen is safe and was located with the help of local law enforcement and the FBI.

She was last seen Sunday.


DELHI TWP - Originally thought to be a runaway, investigators are now calling the case of a missing teenage girl a possible abduction. Ingham County Sheriff's Office officials held a press conference Thursday afternoon to discuss the possible abduction of 15-year-old Marissa Bolles. Bolles' family says the girl was last seen Sunday, July 8th, at around 6 o'clock in the morning at her grandmother's home in the 2700 block of Eaton Rapids Road in Delhi Township.

At first considered a runaway, Police say it is their belief she may be with a person of interest from Rome, New York, who has had prior contact with Marissa.

Deputies say they are working with the Michigan State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Any one with information about Marissa Lorene Bolles is asked to call the Ingham County Sheriff's office hotline 517-272-6033.
