GREENWOOD — A Silver Alert issued Wednesday for a 15-year-old reported missing Wednesday was canceled Friday.

Megan Yaste has returned home and is safe, according to her mother, Missy Yaste.

Megan Yaste, of Greenwood, was reported missing to police Wednesday after she did not return home from a walk, Missy Yaste told WRTV.

Missy Yaste, Megan's mother, said she was walking around the neighborhood when she texted her father around 11 a.m. saying she was on her way back. But she never returned home.

Missy Yaste said she and her husband tried to reach her phone repeatedly, but their calls went straight to voicemail.

"We love her and we just want her home safe," Missy Yaste said.
