GOFFSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - Despite the shoplifting charge she faces
when she gets home, the family of a New Hampshire teenager are in
high spirits after her five-month disappearance ended with her
arrest in Florida.

Meanwhile, in Florida, Laura Mackenzie met with her mother and
told a judge she was certain she wanted to waive extradition on the
shoplifting charge.

Mackenzie is accused of shoplifting more than $900 worth of clothes and other items from a store at the mall. Unbeknownst to her parents, she was due in Manchester District Court on March eighth, the day she drove off for Goffstown High and disappeared.

Acting on a tip, police found her car and arrested her Monday in
St. Augustine Beach where they said she had been working at a
restaurant.

When she disappeared, her parents noted that her grandmother had
died recently and she was upset that her brother was headed to Iraq
soon.
