Allie Loftis, a Massachusetts teen, has turned up safe in New Jersey.

A missing 13-year-old Massachusetts girl whose plight captured the attention of the Internet, has been found. 

Allie Loftis had been missing for four days when her parents turned to social media in shout-out to the masses to help find their daughter.

They set up the Find Allie Loftis Page on Facebook and the concern poured in. Posting picture after picture, strangers and friends alike came to the site offering help, prayers, and wishes.

On Wednesday, police found Loftis in New Jersey, apparently safe, reported the Wayland Patch, a local website.

Police had never suspected foul play. Instead, they said she was a runaway.
