"I just wanna say to you baby, Aunisty, if you can see me, it's mommy," Raquel Elliot said. "I miss you so much and I love you my buttercup. If you're with somebody, just know that you can come home. You're not in any trouble baby."

Aunisty Elliot vanished after her mom took away her computer, worried that the teen was spending too much time on it.
