WASHINGTON - A missing 17-year-old girl has been found safe and unharmed in Florida, after a nationwide Amber Alert was issued for her Saturday afternoon.

Witnesses saw the teenager being forced into a van at a Target store in Fredericksburg just before noon Saturday.

The Stafford County Sheriff's Office says witnesses saw the girl kicking and screaming as she fought with her family members because she did not want to move to Florida.

The family told the Jacksonville Police Department that they stopped in Stafford County as they were moving to Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The 17-year-old was found with her family in Jacksonville, Fla. just after Midnight.

The incident is still under investigation, and authorities are still figuring out if any charges will be filed.
