LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The search for a missing Rineyville teenager ends in New Jersey. 

Emma Riney's mother tells WDRB her daughter is safe with family.

The 17-year-old was found Monday morning after going missing on Thursday.

Kentucky State Police originally thought the girl was with a man, but Riney's mother now says that's a stranger she met on a Greyhound bus and he's in no way tied to her disappearance.

She says her daughter left because she was being a teen. 

Troopers are working with New Jersey authorities to take the girl into custody and get her back home.
