Valdosta - Investigators now think a teenager who disappeared from a South Georgia amusement park left on her own.

They found security video of 17-year-old Leah Deltedesco entering Wild Adventures Theme Park a little after 7:00 Saturday night. She went to a concert with her family but when it was over, they couldn't find her.

Investigators have security video that they believe shows Leah leaving the park around 8:00. She was wearing the same clothes but had her hair pulled back in a cap. An eyewitness says she saw Leah leaving around that same time with a man, and it didn't look like she was being forced.

"We're still working with her mom and grandmother, we've got New Port Richey officials working on their end in case she shows up down there, and we're still chasing down any leads we get because we're getting quiet a few," said Lt. Wanda Edwards.

Investigators are no longer looking for Leah in the park, but they're still treating it as a missing persons case.
