The Pinal County Sheriff's Office has located a missing 18-year-old.

Quinn Johnson had last been seen Saturday at noon when she left for a run near Poston Butte High School. 

At 11:07 p.m. on Saturday PCSO posted to Facebook saying deputies had located her near Poston Butte High School. 

Detectives say that when Johnson left for a run at noon on Saturday she did not bring her cell phone. 

As Johnson was running through a farm field near Poston Butte High School she saw a white vehicle driving toward her. Johnson was not able to specify whether it was a car, truck or van.

Johnson said she was scared so she ran to Poston Butte High School and climbed onto the roof of one of the buildings.

When Johnson was on the roof she told detectives that she laid down and fell asleep until it was dark and then flagged down people who were searching for her. 

During the time PCSO posted information to social media asking for help from the public they received numerous calls with possible information. This included two independent witnesses who reported seeing her at a store in Queen Creek. 

Detectives will be reviewing surveillance tapes from the locations on Monday to see if it was Johnson or if they can develop any new information on the case.

PCSO says detectives will also be following up with the owner of the farm to see if he had any workers on the field.
