UPDATE: Detroit Police spokesperson Kelly Miner says Jasmine Thomas has been recovered in Akron, Ohio.

Read the original story below:

Police were looking for 16-year-old Jasmine Thomas who was missing since Wednesday, Oct. 16 after she did not show up for school, her sister Yolanda Carroll says.

Carroll tells Fox 2 Jasmine left home Wednesday about 7:30 a.m. for school and was seen around 8:30 a.m. getting into a car, possibly a light blue Impala, that belonged to a group of five older guys. That was near Manor and Curtis streets.

"Jasmine's naive ... so maybe they just took advantage of her, I don't know," Carroll says.

Carroll says Jasmine contacted a friend Wednesday night to say she needed help and a ride home, but she wasn't sure exactly where she was. She told her friend she might be on Seven Mile Road but then the phone hung up.

Carroll tells us Jasmine called her Friday morning, saying she knew she was on the news and that she is safe. However, Carroll says she thinks Jasmine's voice sounded scared and "coached."

Carroll gave the phone number Jasmine called from to police. The phone number just goes to voicemail now.

"Jasmine wherever you're at, we love you, we miss you. We just want you to come home. This is where you belong," her mother, Beverly Thomas, says.

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
