A woman missing since Dec. 26 has been located and arrested in Kenton County on an outstanding warrant.

At 11:20 p.m. Wednesday, 25-year-old Margo Melton was booked in the Kenton County Jail on an "out of county" warrant. Jail records did not list a specific charge.

Earlier, Covington police requested the public’s help locating Melton, who had been missing for weeks and “may be at risk of harm.”

Her friends and family told police they had not heard from Melton since Dec. 26, when she told a family member she could be in danger.
