A relative of a missing Florida teenager has told police she recently received a shocking video call showing the girl in distress with a rope tied around her neck.
Destiny Rose, 16, of Broward County, was last seen on August 20 at the Alpha Group Home in Southwest Ranches, roughly 15 miles southwest of Fort Lauderdale.
Detectives said this week they were recently contacted by the teenager's aunt, who said she had been sent a video call request from her niece's Instagram account. When she picked up, an unidentified man moved the camera to show Rose crying and bound to a chair.
The aunt told police the teen had a rope wrapped around her neck. Before ending the call, the man allegedly said: "If you actually cared about her, you would be here to get her."
The Miami Herald identified the aunt as Shanna Champion. The Instagram video call was not saved as a recording on the device. The man was Hispanic, according to the newspaper.
The suspected assailant was described by Champion as being in his late 20s to early 30s, with a short crew haircut and a small patch of facial hair on his chin, local media outlet WSVN reported.
Rose is currently categorized as a runaway on the Florida missing persons database.
According to a missing poster for the girl published by authorities, the teenager has blonde hair and green eyes. It said Rose was last seen wearing a white shirt, black jacket, red pants, and a pink and black beanie.
Davie Police Department shared multiple news stories on social media yesterday, writing: "Do you recognize this girl? If anyone knows her whereabouts or has any information about her please call Davie Police at 954-693-8200 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS."
The investigation continues.

Thoughts? I am placing Destiny's case in the Missing on TV section since her disappearance was profiled on last night's "Wanted" segment on A&E's "Live PD". Please take a look at the link which I will provide above the admin notes as it shows a new video of Destiny in a car with a dog two days after she was first disappeared. It is not known if the driver is the same person who sent the video to Destiny's aunt. It was also stressed that although Destiny appears fine in the video, the information gathered suggests she may be in danger.
