Maryland + Texas: Is it possible to report highly suspected child abuse and neglect that is occurring across state lines?

I am a 19 yr old male living in Maryland, who is admin of a small Discord server for online gaming. My server is home to several adults, and a handful of legal minors (under 18) within the age ranges of 15-17. We are a heavily moderated safe area for people of all walk of life, and I have known the minors since I was 17 and attending school in MD.
The group of under-18s are all living in Texas. One kid (15 yr old female, who I'll call Green here for anonymity) is currently living with her two adult parents, and 3 siblings.
I won't go into too much detail, but let's just say that the absolute Hell we've heard over the voice chat, in-game vc, and seen through messages, pictures, and eye-witness reports is making me lose my faith in humanity.
Green's parents are constantly screaming at her for eating "too much" and ban her from eating dinner or breakfast for multiple days to "make her thin again". She's literally only 118 pounds.
Green isn't allowed to visit her friends anymore irl(the other minors in chat) because one of them is black.
Green's mother threatened to beat her because her bf has really long hair in his pics, so her mom thought it was a woman, and therefore Green was a lesbian.
Green's parents have left her and her siblings at home alone to go to the casino. For 7 days. During the pandemic. With one little brother who is epileptic and suffers from seizures. Btw, they forgot to give him all of his medicine before their little trip. Green had to call fuckin 911.
Green has visible markings from being slapped, punched (by both parents btw), pulled out hair, kicked, struck with spatulas, burned, and a missing nail on one finger.
There are entire screenshotted convos of us trying to console her on discord after her mother called her a waste of resources or locked her in her room with no means of getting out for hours. Trying to convince her not to kill herself or run away into the desert at night. She has told school ocounselors, therapists, they do jack shit. Their community is some boondock full of shootings and drugs.
She has told her other family, a tio and tia, who have offered to have her move in, but her parents refuse and have threatened to call the cops if the tio refused to let her return. So far, nobody has called CPS.
Her bf considered doing it himself, but being underage, he's scared to try it. He tried to convince his mother, but his mother blamed Green for "not trying to reach out to more adults. That's the problem with kids these days, they talk to their friends more about issues but not reasonable intelligent adults." fucking ironic. Green even believes this victim-blamey malarkey even though minutes before she was trying to call cps herself.
After hearing this tripe for 9 months now, I've decided that I'm fed up with this idea that just because I'm far away, I cant do anything about it. It only got worse, and I can't ignore it anymore. That victim-blaming thing just happened mere minutes ago, and it finally caused me to snap.
I'm one of the only active legal adults in the damn chat that knows everything about what's going on and has evidence in the form of recordings and screenshots. Every minor in the chat has pictures of the inside of the house (an absolute pigsty) And I want to know if there's something I can do about it. I live in a whole different state, but ffs there has to be something I can do!?! I'm tired of ignoring this. I have their irl names, and her irl friends have the extra details like addresses, parent's names, actual dates for events, pictures, etc. We have some damning evidence.
What. Can. I. Do?
