(Scroll down for video) A mother was shocked to learn that her young daughter was gang raped on Facebook Live, and nobody thought about calling police to stop the attack, according to police in Illinois.

Chicago police said that they are looking to arrest 6 young men who were seen on video raping the 15-year-old girl, who went missing from her parents’ home last week.

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson watched the Facebook Live video after the girl’s mother filed a complaint.

Johnson said that he was distraught by the fact that 40 people watched the attack as it unfolded and did not bother to call the police.

Police contacted Facebook, and the video was removed from the site. Officers searched for the girl and found her. The girl has since been reunited with her mother, and she is currently recovering in a hospital.
