Missing Peabody teen found safe

A Peabody teenager who went missing on Thursday was found safe in Boston early Friday morning.

PEABODY —  A 14-year-old student who went missing on Thursday was found safe in Boston early Friday morning, according to the Peabody Police Department.

Kamari Unique Bunn, who attends the J. Henry Higgins Middle School on Perkins Street, attended classes but did not return home after school.

Police issued a be on the lookout call for the girl. An officer called her cell phone after midnight last night and she agreed to go to the Massachusetts State Police headquarters at Leverett Circle for a ride home.

“She was with another female juvenile from Peabody and they were both safe,” said Peabody Police Lt. William Cook. “We’re glad it worked out.”

Police issued a request for help to find Bunn on their Facebook page on Thursday.

This is not the first time Bunn, a transplant from Texas, has gone missing. Last October, authorities said she left a note telling her family she was running away her Crane Brook Way home. She was found later that night.

Todd Bucey, Higgins’ Middle School principal, did not return multiple calls seeking comment.

Superintendent Cara Murtagh declined to provide any details about the girl’s disappearance.

“I can confirm that she was in school today,” she said.
