TOWN OF GENESEE, Wis. - Authorities say they're not seeking anyone in the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl who turned up safe in Chicago after going missing Tuesday.

The new details were disclosed Saturday during a news conference held by the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department outside the home Kathryn Stalbaum in the Town of Genesee. Investigators say she in good physical condition Friday evening when she approached a Chicago police officer.

Sheriff's Inspector Eric Severson says Stalbaum was "happy and talkative" Saturday. But he says investigators were waiting to ask her detailed questions about why she went to Chicago, how she got there and what she did since she disappeared Tuesday.

They do know that Katherine left her house alone and was found alone.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the girl and her parents did not attend the news conference but a family statement thanked authorities.

The family was reunited shortly after 12 a.m. Saturday morning.
