Ashley Murray, the 16-year-old Peconic girl who went missing 12 days ago, walked into Southold Town Police headquarters safe and sound Friday, authorities said.

Murray, who was reported missing from her Springs Lane home Monday, Feb. 25, showed up at the North Fork police station at 3:15 p.m., according to investigators. But police could not say where she’s been.

“She was in good physical condition and she stayed with us until around 4:30,” said Southold Town Police Chief Martin Flatley, noting that she arrived with a friend.

Investigators had teamed with Suffolk police, the FBI and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the high-profile search that included a search party organized by friend and family.

Flatley said Murray was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

“Even though the searching is over, the investigation is still active,” he added.
