Update: Missing Medfield teen found in Coventry, RI

Homeland security investigators conducted a search warrant Thursday evening at the Super 8 motel in West Greenwich, RI.

ABC 6 was on scene when special agents walked out of the motel with bags of evidence; they say the search was "successful."

The US attorney's office confirmed that an individual was placed in federal custody and will appear in US district court on Friday. It's unclear what, if any charges, the suspect will face.

17-year-old Brittany Thompson is safe, with her family tonight.
