Altamonte Springs police search for missing 17-year-old

Altamonte Springs police need the public's help to find a missing teen.

They say Ahanti Adams, 17, was last seen on Friday leaving her home.

Police say Adams' mother was told that her daughter was seen on a social media post at a friend's house, possibly in Sanford, on Saturday.

Officials say Adams takes medication, which she does not have in her possession.

Her family is concerned for her well-being, as she has made statements in the past to hurt herself.
