A 15-year-old girl missing from Lakeville since Monday has been located, and her father has been taken into custody.
Lakeville police say they located the pair Thursday, after issuing a statewide crime alert and asking for the public’s help on Wednesday.
Authorities became concerned for Melanie Meri Davy on Monday when her 38-year-old father, Shon Davy, failed to return her after visitation. Davy was convicted in Ramsey County in 1995 and 1998 for second- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He also requires a personal care attendant for medical needs.
Authorities are still investigating why the two disappeared. The girl’s condition has not been released.
