The teen was reported missing Sunday after last being seen at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday at her home, Richmond police Lt. Joey Schlemmer said.

On Monday, investigators had information indicating that the teen was possibly being held captive by a 21-year-old man, and perhaps another man, who is “refusing to allow her to come home,” Schlemmer said.

Schlemmer said she had posted a strange Facebook message Saturday indicating that she was scared and unable to get home and to let her father know. Later, cousin Deandre Woodwards said she made a frantic phone call to her grandmother Sunday morning.
