DETROIT — A 14-year-old girl who was reported missing over a year ago by her foster parents has been found hiding in a hallway closet in Michigan, authorities said.
“She was crying. She didn’t know where she was going to go. She was pretty terrified. And she was afraid of losing her baby,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Robert Watson, who helped find the girl, said in an exclusive interview with the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday. The girl is estimated to be four to five months pregnant.
According to Watson, who led the fugitive team that found the girl, the teen was found Tuesday in a house in Port Huron, Michigan, about 62 miles northeast of Detroit, and then taken to a hospital by a Child Protective Services agent. After a checkup at the hospital, she was reunited with her biological father.
