Girl Ran Away After Dispute With Stepfather Over MySpace Account

Full story and MySpace profiles:

The 15-year-old girl whose marathon case of hiccups made international news earlier this year was found safe by her mother Monday night, about 14 hours after she was reported missing.

Jennifer Mee was found walking about two miles from her home at 9:30 p.m., her mother, Rachel Robidoux said. "She had been at a friends house at one point," Robidoux said. "She had also been walking the streets aimlessly, not knowing where to go."

Robidoux said she had not yet discussed with her daughter why she ran away.
"I think she just wants her freedom, and she has to realize there's going to be boundaries at that age," Robidoux said.

Mee's struggles with chronic hiccups -- up to 50 times a minute for months -- made her an Internet sensation and darling of morning television news shows, who aggressively fought to book the ninth-grader for interviews.

The hiccups that forced her out of school have only been sporadic recently, Robidoux said.

Mee had been upset after a disagreement with her stepfather over a account they didn't know about. They disconnected her cell phone service as punishment.
