A 16-year-old Ocean City girl who was reported missing last week, was located safe in Mesquite, Texas, early Monday morning, according to Ocean City police.

Natalie Woollerton was found in the same Lexus sedan that she took from her mother's home early Wednesday morning. A police officer noted the vehicle as suspicious and was able to link it to the case, according to a release from Ocean City police.

Police are investigating Woollerton's whereabouts between Ocean City and Texas.

Woollerton is diagnosed with high-functioning Asperger syndrome.
