Police have found a missing 15-year-old girl who family and police say was sexually assaulted on Facebook Live.

Earlier Tuesday, the police spokesperson announced that the girl was found and reunited with her family, and that the department is conducting interviews.

According to local TV station WGN, Austin's uncle had informed her mother that he had seen a graphic video involving her daughter, which led the mother to believe she had been raped. She said her daughter appeared to be scared, and the men were acting abusive toward the teen.

This is the second time in a few months that a Chicago crime was live streamed over Facebook.

The Lane Tech High School freshman left home going to the store Sunday afternoon. She told him her daughter had been missing since Sunday and showed him screen grab photos of the alleged assault.

"She was found today [Tuesday] at 7:45 a.m.", the spokesperson said, adding that she was now being treated at a nearby hospital.

Only then did police authorities initiate a full-scale investigation and request Facebook to take the video down.

Mr Guglielmi said about 40 people viewed the girl's ordeal on Facebook while it was happening, but none of them reported it to police.

He said Johnson was "visibly upset" after he watched the video, both by its contents and the fact that there were "40 or so live viewers and no one thought to call authorities". "It's just not right".

Officers in Chicago are searching for the group after the girl was attacked by a group of males this week. In January, four people were arrested after a cellphone footage showed them allegedly taunting and beating a mentally disabled man.
