    A Delray Beach teen who went missing on her way to a school bus stop was found at a motel in Hialeah on Tuesday. Jade Beneby, 17, was found at the El Paraiso Motel at 1615 west Okeechobee Road, police said. Delray Beach Police spokeswoman Sgt. Nicole Guerriero and the girl's mother, Sandra Stewart, discuss the incident.

    Police have questioned the suspect and Beneby, but no charges have been filed.

    Beneby had left her home around 6:30 a.m. and was walking to the bus stop four blocks away at Southwest 8th Avenue and Southwest 1st Street when she may have been abducted, police said.

     

    Beneby never made it to the bus stop, and shortly after 7 a.m., she sent her mother a text message asking for help, Guerriero said.
    Minutes later, she sent another text saying she'd "done all that she could and stating that she was in the trunk of a vehicle," Guerriero said.
    On Tuesday, her family took her to the hospital, but no other information was available.
    Police continue to investigate the case as an abduction.
