VENICE, Fla. — A Venice teen who may have been in a 'computer luring situation' has been found safe.

Amanda Rae Schultz was last seen leaving her Venice home this morning just before 7 a.m. 

Throughout the investigation, detectives have learned that Amanda has been in contact with who they call an alleged 18-year-old male known as 'Leo' from Austria. They say he may have flown here to meet her and rent an Airbnb.

When Amanda left the house this morning, she reportedly had no phone, identification or money.

She is about 5'10" and 130 lbs. with blond hair and blue eyes.
