MACOMB TOWNSHIP — On Nov. 10, around 8:20 a.m. in the 18000 block of Newton Street, near 24 Mile Road and Romeo Plank Road, Macomb County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a juvenile missing person report.

“Our deputies verified that the missing (person) was safe and at home on Nov. 11,” Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Renee Yax stated.

Yax indicated the individual was picked up in Detroit by her parents.

According to the case report, deputies made contact with the juvenile’s mother, who stated that after school on Nov. 9, the missing subject, a female, was supposed to attend a school dance and then spend the night at a friend’s house.

The missing subject’s father looked at her Instagram account and “saw that she was with a man in her pictures and not at the dance,” the report states.

A photo of the unknown male was then emailed to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

The report also states that the subject does not have a cell phone, only an iPod.

“The subject’s mother contacted the mother of the friend whose home she was supposed to be staying at,” the report states.

The friend’s mother said the subject did not spend the night there on Nov. 9. On the morning of Nov. 10, the subject’s mother attempted to contact her through the iPod and on her second attempt, “she answered and replied she was up and hung up.”

The mother told deputies her daughter does not take any medication and believed her to be in good health, adding she does not have a mental health condition.

“The mother stated that her daughter has been seeing a man that she is unsure of the identity of,” the report states.

The mother showed deputies five Instagram videos her daughter had posted since the night of Nov. 9, showing her “with an unknown black male,” the report states.

The Detroit Police Department was contacted to check an address in the 12000 block of Rosemary Street in Detroit, where the missing subject’s friend and mother lived.

“The subject was placed into LEIN (Michigan Law Enforcement Information Network) as a missing person,” the report states.
