Missing 14 Year Old Found Safe

Missing teenager Lateesha Wilson was found unharmed in nearby Cavalas, TX after a two week manhunt. An Amber Alert was issued for the missing girl 15 days ago when her mother reported that she never came home from school. The investigation quickly focused on a secret online relationship she had been having with someone claiming to be a 15 year old boy from Oklahoma. Police were forced to admit that that line of investigation had run dry four days later when it was clear that the boy was real and there was no evidence to indicate that they had met in person.

Volunteers with Texas Equine Rescue searching areas of the Big Thicket and boaters on Lake Greystone recently paused their efforts until more information might arise that would help them narrow their searches. The family never gave up hope and continued to canvass the area with photos of their missing daughter.

Wilson walked into the Cavalas dollar store wearing the same clothes as on the day of her disappearance. Her family says that their daughter is healthy and apparently unharmed. So far the teen has claimed amnesia, not even realizing that two weeks had passed. She has been unable to explain to authorities her whereabouts or how she ended up in Cavalas.

At a press conference earlier today, Golan County Sheriff Butch Anderson said “We’re just glad to have Lateesha back safe and sound. Now that she’s home where she belongs, there’s plenty of time to figure out whether this was a runaway case or something else.”
