Relatives were behind getting a disgruntled teen in a van after what appeared to be an abduction from a Target store in Stafford Saturday morning.

An Amber Alert has been canceled after the scene unfolded the store.

A dark van pulled in front of the store with its side door open. Moments later, a teenage girl tries to fight off three other people as they struggle to push her in the van.

The teen was apparently upset that her family was moving to Florida, and tried to make a run for it after a stop at the store.

Police are looking for a girl abducted from a Target store in Virginia. An amber alert has been issued.

Police do not know the girl's name yet, but say that a 17-year-old African-American female with brown hair, standing 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighing about 140 lbs was abducted from a Stafford County Target at 11:26am Saturday morning.

Police say the girl was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, dark pants, and black purse.

She was last seen with a black man and two black women apparently forcing her into a vehicle. Police believe the car may be a green 1998 Dodge Caravan license plate 984610. The rear cargo windows were tinted, and police say there are two small flags hanging from the rear-view window.
