Chicago police are currently investigating the alleged gang-rape of a 15-year-old girl that was reportedly broadcasted on Facebook live.

The girl, who was reported missing Sunday afternoon, is said to be the victim of a gang rape that was live streamed over Facebook, reports Fox News.

Investigators said that while approximately 40 people watched the video, no one called the police about the alleged crime.

“Here’s what’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw it and didn’t pick up the phone to dial 911,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told WGN-TV. “That’s not right. It’s just not right.”

The teen’s family reported her missing Sunday afternoon. She left to go to the store and didn’t come back. The teen’s uncle called Stacey Elkins, her mother, and told her he had seen a live video of the girl being assaulted by a group of people.

Elkins brought screenshots of the video to Johnson who was “visibly upset” by the live stream. The video, according to Elkins, features her daughter unclothed.

“For you to do something like that and then to post it up on Facebook like it’s a joke, it’s just terrible. I know they’ll get their day coming,” Elkins said of the video.

The girl was found Tuesday morning and seemed to be all right. She was taken to a hospital for an examination.

Facebook has since removed the video.

This is the second time in a few months that a Chicago crime was live streamed over Facebook. A group of black Chicago residents live streamed their brutal assault of a white mentally handicapped man in January. (RELATED:‘F**k Donald Trump, F**k White People!’: 4 People In Custody After Man Kidnapped, Tortured On Facebook Live)

They beat, punched and kicked him while shouting anti-Trump slogans and chants.
