A Puna teenager missing since December 2012 has been located, police said today.

They said Carlierose Rodrigues-Kihe, 17, was found in Kailua-Kona on Sept. 26.

The teen was located unharmed, police said.

Rodrigues-Kihe, who was 16 when she disappeared, had last been seen in Kea`au on Dec. 7. (A police report issued in March about her disappearance misspelled the teen’s first name.)

***Updated at 9:48 a.m. to correct spelling of Rodrigues-Kihe’s first name.***
