New Jersey State Police released the 911 call of teen Kara Alongi, who in September claimed she was abducted from her home.

The 16-year old Clark resident placed the call on Oct. 2 from a rest stop along the New Jersey Turnpike.

Alongi disappeared on Sept. 30 right after she tweeted “There is someone in my hour ecall 911.”

Her tweet ignited hysteria across the internet as #HelpFindKara trended worldwide.

The teen called 911 from the John Fenwick rest stop and claimed she was abducted from her home, taken to a train station and then put on a bus.  Alongi was unsure if her abductor followed her, but did tell police he was a 28-year old black male.

Although Alongi stands by her story, Clark Police Chief Alan Scherb maintains that Alongi was not abducted. The investigation is ongoing.  Scherb did not reveal why the case has been open for so long.
