MISSOURI CITY, Texas (KXAN) — A 17-year-old girl was abducted from her Houston-area home by an unknown suspect, Wednesday, triggering a statewide Amber Alert. That alert was discontinued Thursday morning.

Jazmine Johnson was taken from her home in Missouri City, about 15 miles southwest of downtown Houston, and was believed to be in grave or immediate danger, the Texas Department of Public Safety said. NBC affiliate KPRC reported police found her around 4:30 a.m. but did not give details about her abduction.

Officials have not released a suspect or suspect vehicle description.

Anyone with information on the abduction should call the Missouri City Police Department at 281-403-8700.
