MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – An 18-year-old Goffstown woman who ran away in March arrived back in New Hampshire on Thursday.

Laura Mackenzie was taken directly to court after her flight arrived and later was released on $1,500 bail.

Mackenzie had not been seen since she left home for school March 8. Her parents didn’t know it, but she had been due in court that day on charges of shoplifting from Filene’s at a mall.

Earlier this week, Mackenzie was found in Florida.

She agreed to return to New Hampshire to face the felony shoplifting charge.
