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.

Asked if there is a connection between the girl and the location where she was found, Jones told reporters his office does not believe there is any relation to the person living in the Wisconsin residence.

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.

Pruitt is being held with no bond and his first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday, according to Monroe County Sheriff's online records.

CNN is not naming the girl because she is the alleged victim of sexual assault.

The girl had last been seen January 13 at her home in Madisonville, in eastern Tennessee between Chattanooga and Knoxville.
