Rodnae has run away before and based on what may have happened the last time, her mother fears her daughter may have been introduced to prostitution. The teen has been missing since Thursday when her mother dropped her off at Northwestern High School. She did not attend classes and appears to have left the school shortly after drop off.

Rodnae's family believes she's with Terrence Jones, a long time family friend. They say text messages suggest the teen and the 45-year-old are in a relationship.

To make matters worse, Rodnae is on medication to treat her depression. Without it, she could become suicidal. Rodnae is about 5'5" and 130 pounds. Her hair is braided. The man she's believed to be with is believed to be driving either a white conversion van, a newer, white Chevy Impala or a burgundy pickup truck. If you have any information about Rodnae's disappearance, call Detroit Police.
