Queensland Police posted about the missing teen Sunday, asking citizens on the social network to contact them if they had any information about the girl.

Not long after her photo and information were posted, she commented: “Guys I'm fine I'm not missing this is an overreaction to a fight I had with my sister, I'm legit just sitting in my bedroom.”

The slightly embarrassed police replied to her comment saying: “I am glad that you're safe, but we can't take this down until you've been sighted by police and we've confirmed that you're okay.”

They asked her to call the station or come down to verify that she is fine and not missing so the search can officially end.
