Police don't believe a missing New Jersey girl who tweeted that someone was in her home is in any danger.

Kara Alongi gained hundreds of followers after asking people on Twitter to call 911 Sunday. People re-tweeted her message and the hashtag "#helpfindkara" trended on the social network.

Police Chief Alan Scherb tells The Star-Ledger of Newark there was no sign of foul play in the 16-year-old's Clark home.

Scherb says the girl remains missing and should call police.
