Police in Boca Raton have found 18-year-old Annysia “Nysi” Martin.

The wheelchair-bound woman disappeared Friday on her way to the Boynton Beach Mall.

Her mother Nhekia Osborne thinks someone her daughter met online lured her away.

“I want to love on her, and love on her and love on her and give her some extra love and then some extra, extra love with whipped cream on top!” her mother said.

Osborne also has a lot of love for the man who found her daughter. Boca Raton police say an AT&T employee was checking out an area behind his building where the homeless usually hang out. Martin, who has cerebral palsy, was on the ground next to her wheelchair.

“She’s here alive, she’s talking, she’s snappy. She has Annysia’s spirit so I cried my eyes out when I looked at her,” Osborne said.

Osborne thinks her daughter met someone using the social media app Kik. She thinks the person convinced Nysi to meet them Friday afternoon.

No one heard from her until today.

She will spend the night in the hospital as a precaution. She’s expected to be fine.
