Missing Teen Case
Dallas police have been looking into a missing teen case for the past couple of weeks and were able to get more people on the case thanks to the Texas FBI office. A teen had allegedly met 34-year-old Jorge Ivan Santos Camacho in an online chat room. The two had been communicating for awhile and Jorge convinced the girl to meet him.
A few weeks ago, he picked her up in front of her Dallas home and drove her thousands of miles away to a residence in North Carolina. The thirteen-year-old girl has allegedly been abused by Jorge the past few weeks. Police in North Carolina were able to coordinate a sting into Jorge's residence with the help of the FBI. The teen was found living in a shed in the back of the residence. She was taken to a nearby hospital for an evaluation and is being returned to her family in Texas.
