A missing 13-year-old girl is believed to be in with what some news reports indicate is her 27-year-old boyfriend. A warrant has been issued for the man’s arrest. Authorities have not released her name or photo.
Crystal Police investigators are asking for help in finding a missing 13-year-old girl.
Police say the girl was reported missing on Wednesday by her family, who believes she may be in the company of 27-year-old Jose Rueda-Abrego, a known friend. Police believe the girl went on her own free will.
The two may be traveling south of the Twin Cities, possibly leaving Minnesota. Police say they have information that leads them to believe the suspect was in Texas Wednesday evening. Police found the vehicle Rueda-Abrego drove from the Twin Cities unoccupied in Austin.
On Thursday a warrant for the arrest of Rueda-Abrego was signed with the charges of kidnapping, deprivation of parental rights and false imprisonment.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crystal Police Lieutenant Dave Oyaas at (763)531-1014.
