17-Year-Old Girl from Colorado Springs Found Safe after Being Missing for Six Months
When Katie Davis was only 16 years old, she went missing. Six months later, the girl was found safe. Her case was featured on the season finale of A&E’s “Live Rescue.”
On July 9, 2020, the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office posted on its official Facebook page that Katie Davis, from the Colorado Springs area, had gone missing. They urged people to contact authorities if they saw her.
The last time that Davis was seen before her sudden disappearance was July 5. Her worried family described her as a 16-year-old girl with red hair and blue eyes.
They also pointed out that Davis was 5 feet 5 inches and about 135 pounds. One of the most remarkable features Davis’ family reported was a piercing on her right eyebrow.
While authorities didn’t know where she could be, they believed she might be in the company of an adult male. For six long months, nothing much was publicly revealed about her case.
Fortunately, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) posted on its official Facebook page that Davis, who was featured on the season finale of A&E’s “Live Rescue,” had been found safe! They wrote:
“Getting missing child information out to the public is critical. This safe recovery wouldn't have been possible without the viewers of ‘Live Rescue!’”
The details of her case have not been disclosed. Sadly, Davis is not the only minor who went missing last year. According to AMBER Alert’s official website, 1,029 children were rescued in 2020, thanks to them.
More recently, two siblings were abducted from their foster home in upstate New York.
AMBER Alert stands for America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response Alert, and it is an emergency response system that shares information about a missing child by media broadcasting.
The NCMEC has also been immensely helpful in these cases. In September 2020, for example, a 12-year-old girl went missing from her family’s home in Philadelphia.
Eventually, the NCMEC featured her story on a national TV show and asked people to share any possible information about her whereabouts. Shortly after that, the girl was found in the Philadelphia area.
More recently, two siblings – five-year-old Dimitri Cash Jr. and three-year-old Shekeria Cash – were abducted from their foster home in upstate New York by, reportedly, two men.
Two days later, the children were found unharmed in Montgomery, Alabama. A woman was arrested in relation to the case, but the police admitted that the investigation wasn’t over, and they were focused on finding everyone involved.
