HOUSTON — UPDATE: The teen has bee found safe.


A 16-year-old girl who was reported missing last weekend was found safe, according to her father.

The teen had been missing since Sept. 9.

Her father said his daughter was trying on homecoming dresses at her home near Cypress before suddenly disappearing.

"The window was just wide open," he said.

The father said he tried calling her on Facetime, but a man answered her phone instead. 

"I talked to the gentleman," he said. 

According to the father, the man said he found his daughter's phone on the road and he agreed to meet up to give it back. Once the father got the phone back, he said he went through it, looking for clues. He said her social media was completely wiped out, but he did find a message from someone saying they'd send an Uber.

The father said his daughter had just moved to the Houston area in March after living with her mom out of state.
