Janautica Burt: Riviera Beach police search for missing teen believed to be aided by adult male

Police are searching for a missing Riviera Beach teen who is believed to be aided by an adult male.

Police say 15-year-old Janautica Burt has been missing since July 13, 2013. She has been a runaway in the past, but only for a few days.

Her mother believes that this time Janautica is with a 19 year-old male she considers to be her boyfriend. The mother strongly suspects that the boyfriend is preventing her daughter from returning to her family and from attending school, officials say.

Janautica was a ranaway in June 2013, but was located 5 days later at the home of a relative of the boyfriend.  The family has extreme concern for Janautica's safety because they believe she is incapable of providing for herself for such a lengthy period of time. 

There is no indication of any medical endangerment.

Anyone who has information about where 15 year-old Janautica Burts may be located is asked to contact Riviera Beach Police at (561) 845-4123 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
