This afternoon, Boston Police located the Belmont teenager who has been missing for nearly two weeks and whose parents believed she was being held against her will.
"Early this afternoon, the Boston Police located Erica Rivera at a residence in the city. She is safe and in their custody. The circumstances of her disappearance are still under investigation," reported Belmont Police Lt. Richard Santangelo.
Erika Rivera was last seen at school on May 25, and although she left on her own accord with a 16-year-old Boston teen, Erika's mother, Zenaida Roman, told Boston Fox25 her daughter phoned home and whispered that she wanted to come home but the phone call was cut short.
Erika had been placed on the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children website.
Roman said her daughter ran off with the boy – who she previously ran away with for five days in April – she met on Facebook and who reportedly brags about being in a gang.
