TRUMANN, Ark. – Northeast Arkansas woke up to great news Thursday morning in the form of the missing Trumann 16-year-old, Arissa Farmer, being found safe. She is currently on her way home as of this writing.
Arissa was found at 2:00 a.m. Thursday morning, Feb. 1, in O’Neil, Nebraska. The press release from Trumann Police Department said she was found with a male she had apparently met on social media.
Law enforcement had searched for four days for the girl.
Thanks for everything you have done for us. My husband and I, to say the least, are excited and anxious for the return of our daughter.
We don’t know anything other than what has been release by TPD.
We are all so exhausted as we have been running on adrenaline since this thing started.
We would like to thank the countless man hours that have been put in by the officers to make this day happen.
We would love for conversations to be started and continued by students, teachers, administrators, parents, and law makers regarding internet safety off school grounds with school issued computers.
Again thank you, NEA Report, for helping to keep this story in the public’s eye.

The FBI, Arkansas State Police, Jonesboro Police Department, and Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office helped Trumann Police Department in this search.
“The recovery of Arissa is contributed to an intense multi-agency investigation and the support of our community,” said Trumann Chief of Police Chad Henson.
