Police: Missing Florida teen seen on Instagram video tied up and crying
DAVIE, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - The Davie Police Department is searching for a missing teenager whose family says they received a video call showing her tied up to a chair with a rope around her neck.
Destiny Rose, 16, has been missing since Aug. 20. She was last seen at the Alpha Group Home in Southwest Ranches. According to Davie police, the aunt of the missing girl said she got a terrifying live video call from Destiny's Instagram account. In the video, the aunt says that a Hispanic male was filming Destiny crying while bound to a chair.
"If you actually cared about her, you would be here to get her," the anonymous man reportedly said before hanging up the call, police told the Miami Herald.
Destiny's family says she is a habitual runaway. The man is described as being in his late 20s to 30s with a crew cut hairstyle and a patch of facial hair on his chin.
