Teen reported missing in Florida could have ties to adults found captive in Tacony

    A teenager who went missing in Florida over the summer was found recently in Philadelphia, and authorities believe she might be tied to the four mentally disabled adults found over the weekend in a Tacony basement.

    The Inquirer reports the 15-year-old was reported missing in July and was believed to have run away. She was last seen with Gregory Thomas Jr., the son of one of the three suspects arrested for holding the victims captive.

    Benita Rodriguez lived in West Palm Beach before she went missing, where suspect Linda Ann Weston has a home.
