Missing Hartland Girl Returns Home
Brittany Dickson comes back home, mother thanks community for support.
The Hartland teenager who went missing on Monday has returned home and is safe, according to her mother.
Brittany Dickson, 17, left her home on Monday afternoon after a fight with her mother. The teenager walked out without her shoes and cell phone and the family didn't hear from their daughter for over 24 hours.
Aimee Lawrence, Brittany's mother said she was grateful for all the support she received from the community.
"I am so thankful and overwhelmed at the support that I got in two days regarding Brittany," Aimee Lawrence said in an email to Hartland Patch. "There are a lot of people that love Brittany very much.
"We want the best for her and hope that she gets on the right track again. Tough love is one of the hardest things to do."
Lawrence had attempted to file a missing person report on Tuesday afternoon with the Livingston County Sheriff's Department after Brittany had been missing for 24 hours.
The Livingston County Sheriff's Department said that because she was 17 and considered an adult, the family was told they had to wait several more days to officially list her has a missing person because she wasn't considered in danger.
