Liane Hornsey, Uber's new head of human resources, said more than 100 "listening sessions" had taken place across the company. His team is collecting information through interviews and anonymous tip lines, with findings expected at the end of April.

CBS 2 no longer is identifying the girl, because police have said she is the victim of a sexual assault, and because she has been found.

The high school freshman went to the store on Sunday afternoon, but her mother became concerned when she did not return home, WGN said.

Superintendent Eddie Johnson said that several people had viewed the video on social media but did not notify police. She showed him screen-grabbed photos of her daughter, reporting that her daughter had been missing since Sunday.

"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", Johnson told the TV station.

According to investigators, none of the roughly 40 people who watched the video called authorities. "That's just not right", he said.
