Missing Macomb County teen home safe after dad believed she was lured by Israeli national

A Macomb County teen whose family believed was going to meet an Israeli national she met online is home, the girl's father said.

Samantha Merecki disappeared Tuesday. Her family was worried that she was going to meet a man because the 16-year-old is an activist who is interested in Jewish and Israeli culture.

Her father, Jeremy Merecki, said that Samantha was found and brought home by police Wednesday. He said he was taking her to a hospital for a physical and psychological exam.
