NEWTON, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A 16-year-old Newton teen who had not been seen or heard from since June 26 was found safe in Boston Sunday afternoon.

Ana Lopez called her mother at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to tell her she was leaving her Chestnut Hill home, police said.

Authorities searched the area near Hammond Pond and The Mall at Chestnut Hill Saturday because Ana's cellphone was last traced to that area, the Boston Globe reports.

Ana has been known to frequent Harvard Square, Boston Common, and Salem, police said.
