The Union County Prosecutor's Office says a cab driver positively identified Alongi as his passenger and told officials he drove her to the Rahway train station.
The 16-year-old's parents called Clark police when they returned home and saw she was gone.
The prosecutor's office says Alongi might feel she'll be in trouble for causing a panic. However, authorities say all everyone cares about is seeing her home safe and sound.
