FORT MYERS, Fla. - A Fort Myers teen has returned to the united states after running away to brazil with her boyfriend.

Family says 15 year-old Samantha Hernandez used a fake passport to leave the country.  At the time, her family had no legal way to bring her back.

However, her family now says Hernandez has been in Boston since 11 Saturday morning.
The State Department worked with the Brazilian government to get her home.  She didn't come on her own accord.

Her family tells WINK News they're thrilled to have her back.
