Missing Texas Teenager traced to Kansas 02/27/14
February 27, 2014
TOPEKA, Kansas— The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says an Amber alert issued this week suggesting a missing Texas teenager could be in the Kansas City area was a mistake caused by miscalculating the location of her cellphone ping.
Talert was sent around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday after Texas authorities said a ping of 15-year-old Nomei "Mimi" Velazquez's cellphone indicated she may be in the Lenexa and Overland Park areas. Nomei was found unharmed at a Lubbock residence on Wednesday. A 28-year-old construction worker was taken into custody.
