FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Police have not made an arrest in a reported kipnapping of a 13-year-old girl Sunday from a Fort Wayne home that led to the issuance of a statewide Amber Alert. The girl was returned safely late morning Sunday less than 20 hours after she went missing around 4 p.m. Saturday, police said.
Sgt. Michael Joyner with the Fort Wayne Police Department said early Monday that the “person of interest” that young Ser Je Da Be was found with when police found her in southeast Fort Wayne around 11:45 a.m. Sunday had not been arrested. Joyner did not identify that person or say whether it was the girl’s 22-year-old ex-boyfriend who police believed abducted her from a home in the 2000 block of Carterton Drive and put her in “extreme danger.”
Joyner would only say Monday that “it is still an active investigation.”
The statewide Amber Alert was issued just after 6 a.m. Sunday, 16 hours after the girl went missing. Police at the time said they were searching for a two-door car with pink spray paint that possibly had Texas license plates.
