Abbi Obermiller is no longer a runaway.

Obermiller, 17, was last seen at her grandparents' home June 6. Sometime that night, she left this note: “I just couldn’t take any more of this drama,” the note read. “It’s not good for me. Lol. Hope to see you soon when this all blows over. Love, Abbi.”

After an anonymous tip came in, police found Abbi hiding in the attic of an upstairs apartment unit that her boyfriend, 20-year-old Robert "Bobby" Young rented three weeks ago, police said.

She was transported to the Norwalk Police Department and interviewed. She provided information, including the names of who assisted her in running away and hiding from authorities, stated a police department news release.

She met with her parents and grandparents for a short time Wednesday before being taken to the Sandusky County Juvenile Detention facility. She had a detention hearing today in Huron County Juvenile Court for charges of obstruction of official business and being an unruly child. A judge ordered her to stay at the Erie County juvenile detention facility until her next hearing in a week or two.

Abbi disappeared just after finishing up the school year with straight-As. She dreams of becoming an oncologist.
