Officers found the teenager with a male from Dover, Tennessee, who police say she met on social media and who officers had been attempting to locate for four days.
Police initially believed Arissa was a runaway and left voluntarily. But Chief Chadwick Henson said early in the investigation that the teen may be with someone who didn't have her best interest.
Arissa's mother, Tia, posted Thursday on Facebook thanking those who helped bring the girl home, saying ``my husband and I will be able to hug our daughter again.''
