Police forces located 16-year-old Faye Jones today in the Aegean district of Marmaris, four days after the British tourist allegedly ran away with a Turkish bartender, returning the teenager to her mother following a medical examination. 

Jones was found in the center of Marmaris district, according to Anadolu Agency, after her mother applied to police forces on suspicions that her daughter ran off with M.C.E, a Turkish bartender she met during her time in the city with her mother. 

Marmaris police launched an investigation into the matter to identify the missing girl and the suspect, distributing photos of both Jones and M.C.E. to local residents. The couple was located near Muğla Sıtkı Koçaman University. 

After undergoing a medical examination, the British teenager was reunited with her mother, Rhona Jones. If the family chooses to file a complaint, the bartender may be brought in for questioning in line with the investigation, according to officials. 

Jones caused global interest in her case when she allegedly ran away with the man days before she and her mother were set to return to Britain following a short vacation, prompting British newspapers to carry the story to their front pages.
