A Gainesville High School student who had been missing since last Friday has been found. According to the Gainesville Police Department, 16-year-old Marissa DeVito was found alive and safe today in a Gainesville apartment complex. GPD spokeswoman Corporal Angelina Valuri says Marissa was staying with someone she knew. Valuri says DeVito was originally believed to be a runaway when she told friends at school last Friday she planned on traveling to Ft. Myers for the Memorial Day Weekend to visit friends. When days passed without any form of contact from DeVito, investigators declared her a missing person. As of this afternoon Valuri says no charges have been filed. GPD is continuing its investigation on the case.
Fewer firearms — 143 to be specific — are left in the hands of the Gainesville community just one week after the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.
