KEWASKUM - A Clintonville police officer just called to tell TODAY'S TMJ4 16-year-old Eve Marie Amadon just turned herself in to the Clintonville Police Department.

The officer said "they turned up the heat" on their search effort, interviewing 50-60 teens in that area over the last 24 hours.

The girl's father is on the way to get her Thursday afternoon.

The officer said Eve is in good spirits and does not appear to be harmed.  They are interviewing her to determine her activitiy over the last 5 days.

It's been more than a week since family or friends have heard from or seen 16-year-old Eve Marie Amadon. At least three police departments are actively looking for the teen. The girl's mother, Nicole Ebert, is incredibly worried.
 
"Just come home," Ebert told TODAY'S TMJ4 reporter Tom Murray. "We love you and we miss you.  Just come home."
 
Eve is a sophomore at Kewaskum High School.  At first, she seemed like a rebellious teen runaway. Eve took a small bag of clothes and snacks, then left home in the middle of the night. Yet, police say this is no typical runaway case.
 
Police said Eve has had no cell phone contact with family and close friends for a week.  There have been statewide law enforcement alerts and the girl has not been found.
 
"The fact that nobody's had contact with her, that's what really bothers you," said Kewaskum Police Chief Richard Knoebel. "If somebody had contact with her, if she had got ahold of a friend or something that would be different.  But, from what we're hearing, nobody's heard from her or seen her."
 
Eve has a 17-year-old boyfriend in Clintonville, a rural community two hours north of Kewaskum. A Clintonville police officer said he spoke with the boyfriend and the officer does not believe they are together.
 
Eve also has friends and family in Fond Du Lac. Knoebel said police there are involved in the search.
 
"A mother always forgives and loves their children," Nicole Ebert said. "It's not something to be afraid.  We want her here.  She has a little brother and a sister and we all need her."
