(CNN) A 14-year-old girl, who disappeared from Tennessee more than two weeks ago, has been found alive in a residence in Wisconsin, authorities said Thursday. The girl is "doing fine," Sheriff Tommy Jones of Monroe County, Tennessee, said Thursday. Randall Pruitt, who adopted the girl, was arrested Thursday in Tennessee and charged with rape, the sheriff said. "(The girl) would be the victim in that," Jones said. The investigation continues, he said, and there is a possibility other people were involved and could be charged.
