A surveillance camera at the Rahway Train Station caught Alongi waiting for the next train sometime after she posted the now famous message on her Twitter account.
Her family and friends are currently doing what they can to bring the girl home safely by passing around flyers. Her family worries that the media exposure might be causing her to avoid her family and friends still and wishes she would just come home so that they can deal with it together.
"We know that she might be embarrassed or even fearful," said her grandfather Paul Alongi Sr. to the Daily News. "We just want her to know it's okay. Come on home."
While she still faces potential legal problems for the hoax, New Jersey police are more worried about the 16-year-old's wellbeing at the moment and urge her to just come home or contact someone.
"Kara might feel that she will be in trouble if she comes home after this scare and causing a panic," the Clark New Jersey Police said in a statement. "At this point, all everyone cares about is seeing her safe and at her house where she belongs.
Her tweet "there is someone in my hour ecall 911" was shared over 32,000 times on Sunday night.
