JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Authorities canceled a nationwide Amber Alert issued for a 17-year-old girl Saturday, after the teen was found safe with her family.

Concern arose when witnesses saw two people dragging the teen into a van outside a Target store in Fredericksburg, Virginia shortly before noon Saturday, May 29.

According to the Stafford County Sheriff's Office, witnesses became concerned when they saw the girl screaming, kicking and trying to escape from the adults who were dragging her into the van. An investigation ensued and authorities ultimately determined that the adults were the girl's family members.

Authorities say the family stopped at the Target store en route to their new home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The teen didn't want to move; this is what spurred the scene that elicited alarm among witnesses.

Shortly after midnight, the 17-year-old girl was located with her family in Jacksonville, Fla.

The incident remains under investigation; authorities have not filed charges in the case.
