New details on recovered Delray teen

DELRAY BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A family member has confirmed that Jade Beneby, 17, was hospitalized Tuesday after she was found in a Hialeah motel hours after a state-wide missing child alert was issued. She was released from the hospital around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Hialeah police say the Florida Department of Law Enforcement recovered Beneby at El Paraiso Motel on 1615 West Okeechobee Road.

The family member, who asked to remain unnamed, said Beneby did suffer injuries, but didn't specify which hospital she went to or the extent of the injuries she suffered.

Delray Beach Police Sgt. Nicole Guerriero said this is an isolated incident and poses no threat to the community, but it's common practice for someone who went through this kind of situation to be checked out in a hospital.

Sgt. Guerriero also said no arrests have been made at this time.

The Atlantic High School student disappeared on her way to a Delray Beach bus stop at Southwest 8th Avenue and Southwest 1st Street Tuesday morning.

Beneby, 17, left her home around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, and told her mother via text at 7:05 a.m. that she needed help, according police.

At 7:06 a.m., Beneby texted her mother that she had been put into the trunk of a vehicle and that she did "all that she could do."

Investigators spent the day searching for her and talking to her friends, according to Sgt, Guerriero. There were no witnesses to the alleged abduction.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a missing child alert shortly before 11 a.m.

Word that she was found was announced a short time before 3:30 p.m.
