Metro Transit Police: Teen Found Safe, Returned Home

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Metro Transit Police say a teen girl thought to have been abducted from a bus Friday night is now safe and has returned home.

Officials say the man accused of taking the girl is a distant relative who the girl did not recognize. Metro Transit Police interviewed the woman and the man, as well as the family, and say all cooperated willingly and are “no longer of interest to Metro Transit Police.”

Police initially thought the teen was abducted after she was carried off a Route 19 bus by a man around 11 p.m. Friday.
