SW Mo. Teen Found but Baby is Missing
NEVADA (AP) - Police say a 17-year-old southwest Missouri girl who was 9 months pregnant when she went missing a week ago has been found but is refusing to say what happened to the baby.
Nevada police officer Lukas Gibson says the girl was taken into custody Sunday night. He says she is no longer pregnant but has not provided any information about the baby.
Gibson says the teen told her roommate last Monday that she was going to meet a cousin but police later learned she did not have a cousin in the area.
The Springfield News-Leader reports several friends and relatives received a text message indicating the girl may have given birth to a child that was not alive. But it is unknown if she actually sent the message.
