Sept. 30: image from surveillance video shows Kara Alongi at the Rahway, N.J. train station.

A New Jersey teenager purchased a train ticket to New York City on the same day that she tweeted that someone was in her house.

Kara Alongi gained hundreds of followers after asking people on Twitter to call 911 Sunday. However, the evidence so far points toward the 16-year-old being an apparent runaway.

Clark police say they're working with New Jersey Transit to review video from train stations as part of the effort to return the girl home.

An image that police released shows Alongi at the Rahway train station on Sunday. She's seen wearing a purple T-shirt and jeans and is carrying a blue backpack.

Authorities are urging anyone to contact Union County Crime Stoppers if they know the girl's whereabouts.
