The search for a missing Fort Lauderdale teen is over.

Shaina McBride, 14, has been found.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports McBride is at a police station and is in good condition.

Police have spent several days looking for McBride who vanished after exiting her father's houseboat in Fort Lauderdale to text her friends on a nearby patio area.

A dive team went underwater Monday in the canal by her father's home looking for McBride.

The teen's family did not believe she had run away, and they were fearing the worst.
