Apple's Find My iPhone app was used by Pennsylvania State Police to locate a kidnapped teenager 150 miles away from home, reports NBC News.

Pennsylvania State Police were "notified by the victim's mother that her daughter had been taken against her will by her ex-boyfriend" on Tuesday, according to a statement. "The victim's mother related that she had been receiving text messages from her daughter requesting help. The mother was able to track the victim's cellphone by utilizing the iCloud [and] Find My iPhone app."

The 18-year-old victim was found in Milesburg, Pennsylvania, about 150 miles east of Pittsburgh.

"The investigation revealed that the suspect had utilized duct tape to bind the victim's hands, feet and mouth to remove her from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, against her will," the statement added. "The defendant was attempting to leave Pennsylvania with the victim."

The suspect's name is Joseph Boller, 18. His bail has been set at $150,000.

I am still awaiting news about how police has access to our iCloud accounts....do now forget that NOTHING saved in icloud is safe. Police can get hands all over your photos messages documents backed up in unencrypted iCloud. -> There is no way to encrypt your iCloud back up.

Have you actually used an Apple Product? You can encrypt all your backup if you choose on Itunes via direct connections or Wifi. Trying to troll without information makes you an obvious tard. Try going somewhere else with that. You can share your locations in multiple ways. Such options can be done on the iMessage options when you text someone. Get a life dude... it's a sad day to be that lonely.
