[ARCHIVED] Social Media Reports Clarified

Social Media Hemet Police


The Hemet Police Department is aware of a wave of social media posts regarding a missing 11-year-old female from San Jacinto. The general theme of the posts has been a concern for the well-being of the juvenile runaway. However, there has been a significant amount of misinformation spread throughout the community about the facts of the case. It is our intention to clarify the facts without compromising the privacy rights of the parties involved.

On July 8, 2013, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reported a missing juvenile who had runaway from the San Jacinto area. On July 9, 2013, the Hemet Police Department investigated a report that the juvenile had been located by family members at a local motel in the city of Hemet. As a result of the investigation, two individuals were detained by police and the juvenile was returned to family members.

Due to the age of the juvenile, details of the criminal investigation will not be disclosed; however there is no evidence to support the human-trafficking or kidnapping claims being posted on social media. This investigation is on-going and no further information will be released at this time.

The Hemet Police Department would like to thank the community for their continued support and responsible use of Social Media outlets.
