HAWTHORNE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has canceled a missing child alert issued for Kaileigh Hand, a 17-year-old girl from Hawthorne.

No reason was given for the cancellation. A Facebook post by the teen's mother said the girl was found in Caledonia, Minnesota. The girl is in foster care until her mother can get to Minnesota.

Hand was reported missing on Jan 5. Authorities said the girl's mother checked on her in the middle of the night and realized she had left their home.

Investigators said they believe Hand might have run off with a trucker who goes by "Road Rage" online.
