Lying New Jersey Girl Comes Home Safe, Infamous


Kara Alongi, the New Jersey 16-year-old missing since Sunday, has returned home unharmed after setting off an online panic by tweeting “There is somone in my hour ecall 911,” and then disappearing. Police quickly decided Alongi was not telling the truth, but not before the #helpfindkara meme went haywire on Twitter, earning the regular kid more than 109,000 followers, many of whom are now irrationally pissed that they were duped. The girl, who was spotted on security tape buying a NJ Transit ticket to Penn Station, was found walking along the Jersey Turnpike. It’s official: Social media ruins everything, even the age-old practice of running away from home.
