Missing special needs teenager Nashaly Perez Rodriguez found safe
A special needs teenager who disappeared from her Sunset Park school has been found safe. 
Nashaly Perez Rodriguez was taken to Coney Island Hospital to be examined after police say she was discovered at a friend's house Thursday morning. Her family says they couldn't be more relieved or happier to be reunited, and that Rodriguez is unharmed and in good condition.
According to Rodriguez's mother, she had gone to Lillian L. Rashkis High School, or P.S. 371, to pick up the 15-year-old Monday, but was told by school officials that her daughter was missing.
Loved ones say the teen takes medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, among other mental and emotional issues, and is supposed to have one-on-one monitoring at the school at all times.
It's unclear who was supposed to be watching her when she disappeared, but sources tell News 12 Brooklyn that the principal has been reassigned because of the incident.
The Department of Education is investigating. Rodriguez's family says they are deciding if they will send her back to P.S. 371.
