(CBS/WBBM) SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - Schaumburg police and the family of a missing 16-year-old girl continue to search for the teen who failed to come home from school last Wednesday.

Raquel "Rachel" Bonilla sent her mother a text message at 1:50 p.m. last Wednesday to tell her she was going to be staying after school; when her mother returned home later Bonilla was nowhere to be found.

Police said Sunday there is "absolutely no evidence" Bonilla is the victim of foul play and believe the teen left home of her own accord. They are investigating a Facebook relationship that Bonilla allegedly had with a Chicago man in his early 20s, reports CBS affiliate WBBM.

Police were told that an acquaintance dropped Bonilla off at the train so she could travel to Chicago. Since the teen's disappearance, police have received several misleading and false statements regarding contact with her or knowledge of her whereabouts, WBBM reported.

According to the station, onilla's phone records indicate that she used her cell phone after school in the suburban Schaumburg and Hanover Park areas.

Bonilla is described as a 5-feet-5, 170-pound Hispanic girl with a medium complexion, black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Bonilla's whereabouts is asked to call Schaumburg police at (847) 882-3586.
