The Colorado Springs Police Department says missing Lubbock teen Adalie Rivera was found safe in Dumas, Texas.

Police say 13-year-old Rivera was on vacation with her family in Colorado Springs, CO when she took her suitcase and left the hotel in the middle of the night while everyone was sleeping.

Police say she left her on March 17 around 6:30 a.m.

She made her way to a coal train in the Colorado Springs Metro area, boarded the train and ended up in a farm community near Dumas. She was covered in coal dust and was hungry after she "ran out of Skittles."

She was found by a local farmer who notified the Moore County Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Department responded and took custody of Adalie until family members were able to retrieve her.

Police say at this point of the investigation, there is no reason to believe Adalie’s disappearance was criminal.
