'I was not kidnapped!!!!' says social media post attributed to Chattanooga teen Daphne Westbrook

Headshots of Daphne Westbrook circulated by law enforcement when she was missing.

A young woman reported missing from Chattanooga two years ago is apparently posting on social media, saying she was not kidnapped.

Daphne Westbrook, now 18, was reported missing in 2019. Authorities reported last week she was found safe in Alabama, but she has not returned to her mother in Chattanooga.

A post in her name appeared on Facebook over the Memorial Day weekend.

The post came Saturday, the day after the teenager was located by authorities during a traffic stop in Alabama. The post was made on a new account using the teen's name.

"I was not kidnapped!!!!" the post reads. "I just ran away from home, chill out people and leave my family alone!"

Then the account posted a video publicly with the caption "Hello everyone thanks for your concern but I am and have been a-okay! My dog's name is Frank btw and he must be contained or he'll chew the hotel couch so dont feel bad for him!!"

In the 20-second video, Westbrook appears to record herself saying that the account belongs to her and that she's fine.
