A Midland teen, missing for more than two months, will soon be heading back to the Tall City after being found in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City authorities found 17-year-old Sylvia Cardenas on Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities say she is okay.

We're told the man she was with, 38 year-old Hector Anaya Pedroza, has been arrested and is being held by immigration.

Cardenas' family tells NewsWest 9, Texas Rangers tracked Pedroza through a phone call and that call tipped off local authorities.

Her family is on the way to Oklahoma City to bring Sylvia home.
