ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The 15-year-old girl whose marathon case of hiccups made international news earlier this year has been found safe by her mother.

Jennifer Mee was reported missing early yesterday. Her mother says the girl was found walking about two miles from her home last night.

Rachel Robidoux said she had not yet discussed with Jennifer why she ran away.

The teen had been upset after a disagreement with her stepfather over a account they didn't know about. They disconnected her cell phone service as punishment.

Her sister last saw Jennifer Sunday night at a park in north St. Petersburg.
