WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. -- A Bloomington teenager, missing since November, has been found alive in Florida.

On Tuesday, Tiffany Snook, 17, was found in Wesley Chapel, Florida. Police described her living situation as "non-dangerous" and said she was in good health.

Snook was reported missing November 12, and was believed to be with Sezer Gok, 40, of New York. He is now in custody.

Snook told Police she and Gok began dating 7 months ago while working at the mall in Bloomington.

She said she married Gok in a Muslim ceremony and is pregnant with his child.

Police said on November 12, Gok took Snook from Bloomington to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While in Pittsburgh, Snook said Gok read a news article about her being possibly abducted and became nervous.

He then relocated her to Tampa, Florida. The two moved two more times before settling in Wesley Chapel where they were found by U.S. Marshals on Tuesday.
