CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - Juvenile prosecutors have issued a directive to apprehend an 11-year-old girl who Corpus Christi police say filed a false release report back on June 23, and authorities said it is possible two other minors considered parties to the offense will be apprehended as well.
Police say the 11-year-old was reported missing June 23 in the area of Holly and Sacky Drive, near the Corpus Christi Trade Center. Police began looking for her and her supposed abductor, but moments after an Amber Alert was issued, she turned up safe and sound near her home.
Authorities said it turns out it was a made up story and have now filed their case against that child.
Now, along with the 11-year-old girl who police initially sought charges against, a 16-year-old and 14-year-old may be among the juveniles suspected of calling in the false report.
The Nueces County District Attorney's Office told 3News the directive to apprehend was issued Monday at the request of the juvenile court. Police will apprehend the 11-year-old girl and take her to the Juvenile Justice Center where she will be processed until her juvenile court date. The court will decide if the 11-year-old will be released to her parents or if she will remain detained until her court date.
It still has not been decided if a directive to apprehend will be issued for the 16-year-old or 14-year-old.
