17 Year Old Angelic Tracy ‘Anji’ Dean Missing Since 6/23/14 in Camas, WA … May Be A Victim of Human Trafficking: “If You’re Reading This, I’m Either Missing or Dead.” (Update: Found Safe)
17 year old Angelic Tracy ‘Anji’ Dean has been missing since June 23, 2014 in Camas, Washington. The missing teen left an entry in her journal that read, “If you’re reading this, I’m either missing or dead.” The police fear that ‘Anji’ Dean may be a victim of human trafficking after mysteriously vanishing from her Camas home. Prior to her disappearance, “She had been telling some people for a while that she was involved in something, that she was in over her head, that she was scared.” Anji is described as 5-feet, 6-inches tall, weighing 135-145-pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. Anji was last seen wearing exercise clothes, black tights that stop at midcalf, white Nike tennis shoes with light green soles, and a white, razor-back tank top. She may also have a white backpack.
A 17-year-old Washington girl missing for the last two weeks left a chilling message in her journal no mother should have to find.
“If you’re reading this, I’m either missing or dead,” the entry penned by Angelic Tracy ‘Anji’ Dean read.
Authorities fear she’s become a victim of human trafficking after mysteriously vanishing from her Camas home June 23.
The blue-eyed brunette left behind her cellphone, ID, bank cards and the eyeglasses she needs to see, according to the National Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Exploitation (NWCAVE), which is assisting in her search.
Jorgensen said in recent months Anji had been dealing with what her family thought might be some episodes of “teenage angst” and “normal teenage girl depression.”
“Now we are kind of finding out that there was a different, underlying reason,” she said. “She had been telling some people for a while that she was involved in something, that she was in over her head, that she was scared. But they couldn’t get any more information than that out of her.”
Anji’s journal hints at some of those fears and troubles. In addition, she sent her boyfriend some ominous text messages the day she went missing, saying she was in danger, and that people had threatened to kill him and her family. Her boyfriend is cooperating with law enforcement.
“She has never been out on her own for more than a day,” Jorgensen said. “We assumed she was with her boyfriend, or something like that. We had the police talk to him as well. The moment we found out she wasn’t with him, that’s when we really started freaking out because we had no idea where she was.”
She left behind several items of importance including her prescription eyeglasses, bank cards, makeup and clothes, as well as some medications.
“What we see traditionally is if you’re running away from home because you don’t like the rules or you’re running away from something, that’s not against the law, but those types of individuals will take something with them,” Bart said. “If you’re being lured away, you are told to leave things behind so that nobody can track you. That’s the difference.”
Investigators with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office are interested in speaking to an African-American male, approximately 25 to 35 years of age, with a goatee, who drives a light blue older model, square body Volvo. He was seen by a neighbor dropping Anji off in front of her home on June 23 at 4:30 p.m.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office’s Major Crimes Unit was able to locate Dean at the mall in Clackamas County, interview her and reunite her with her family, according to a news release from the agency.
“This is an active investigation that includes the crime of human trafficking,” Sgt. Kevin Allais said in the new release.

12 y old Charlie Bothuelle V has been missing since Saturday, June 14, 2014. in Detroit, Michigan. at 9 p.m. June 14, 2014. Charlie was last seen leaving his home in the 1300 block of Nicolet Place, near Gratiot Avenue Saturday night. A resident of the Martin Luther King Apartments told relatives that she saw Charlie walking east on Lafayette on June 14. It has now been 10 days since Charlie Bothuelle has been seen or heard from. Old Charlie Bothuelle V has run away from home in the past, but was found 3 hours later.
He’s 5′-4″ tall, weighs 120 pounds with brown hair, brown eyes and dark complexion.
He was last seen wearing a red shirt, black and gray pajama pants and a black and gray Phat Farm Jacket.
Missing: Charlie Bothuelle V
The FBI joined Detroit police in the search for Charlie Bothuelle V, who was last seen at 9 p.m. June 14, leaving his home in the 1300 block of Nicolet Place, near Gratiot Avenue, after working out.
Last week, the FBI used cadaver dogs to search Charlie’s home, which led them to a nearby elementary school playground where Charlie is known to hang out. The search went cold at the playground, said the boy’s father, Charlie Bothuelle IV.
Bothuelle and several other family members passed out fliers last week at the nearby Martin Luther King Apartments, where one resident told relatives she saw Charlie walking east on Lafayette on June 14.
Police launched a new search for the missing boy Tuesday night. Several K-9s sniffed around the Martin Luther King apartments on Lafayette searching for the 12-year-old.
At the same time, the boy’s father has been hitting the streets every day searching for his boy. Tuesday night he appeared on “Nancy Grace” begging for help to find him.
Hmm, why would you not tell police the truth about something that seems so minor? Originally, the father of the missing boy told police that Charlie was working out when he stopped to go to the bathroom and never came back. However, Tuesday he told a different story. He says there were some chores that he didn’t do and he cut his work out short.
There is a new twist in the case of a missing 12-year-old boy from Detroit who was last seen leaving his home on June 14.
Polygraph tests for Charlie Bothuell’s father have come back inconclusive. The child’s stepmother declined to take the polygraph test.
She tells 7 Action News her attorney told her to decline the lie detector test because she did not think she would be treated fairly.
The father and stepmother both say they feel like they have been treated like suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police’s Criminal Investigation’s Department at (313) 596-1140.

The Florida man — Steven Myers, 41, of Plant City — and the 16-year-old girl both had stab wounds and were in serious but stable condition, police said. Investigators believe but have not confirmed that Myers stabbed the girl and then himself, said Cpl. Paul Mouton, spokesman for the Lafayette City Police Department.
The missing Tampa Bay area teen found in Louisiana early Thursday was stabbed 10 or 12 times after the registered sex offender she was traveling with “realized he wasn’t getting away” during a high-speed pursuit, a sheriff’s official said.
Ashley Lyon, 16, Valrico was upgraded to serious but stable condition at a Lafayette, La., hospital, police said.
The man she was with, Steven Myers, was also hospitalized after the 40-mile pursuit with law enforcement. He was in serious but stable condition with apparent self-inflicted stab wounds and K-9 bites after confronting officers with a knife, police said.
9 Year Old Ida Rothschild from New Mexico Missing Since 6/13/14 in Samuel P. Taylor State Park in Marin County, CA (Update: Ida Rothschild Found Safe)
9 year old Ida Rothschild has been missing since Friday, June 13, 2014 in Samuel P. Taylor State Park in Marin County, California. The nine year old girl disappeared Friday afternoon around 12:15 p.m. at the campground where the family is staying. According to authorities, the missing girl’s father realized he hadn’t seen his daughter after about 30 minutes and then began looking for her for about an hour to an hour and a half with his wife before calling authorities for help.
Authorities do not suspect foul play at this time. Authorities say the search will continue round the clock.
Missing: Ida Rothschild
Responders from around nine public agencies are on scene assisting with the search, along with more than 100 volunteers, Pittman said.
The county has also called in assistance from neighboring Bay Area counties to continue the search through the night and into tomorrow if necessary.
So far, searchers have found no signs of Ida and no indications of foul play, Pittman said.
Pittman said the Rothschild family, which has two other children, boys aged 5 and 2, is visiting from Santa Fe, New Mexico. They spent yesterday in Muir Beach before coming to Samuel P. Taylor, a heavily forested state park west of Fairfax known for its redwoods and Lagunitas Creek.
Ida is described as being 4 feet 2 inches tall with very dark, almost black hair cut in blunt bangs. She was last seen wearing a pink floral-print terry cloth swimsuit coverup, Pittman said.
The area is rugged, with dense growth and rolling open hills that go for miles, the sheriff’s office said. Lagunitas Creek was receiving special attention because the waterway could be a lure to a child. Water rescue teams from the Marin County Fire Department were searching the creek area. California Highway Patrol aircraft were scanning the area, and thermal equipment was being brought in to assist as the search went into the evening.
The family had visited Muir Beach before coming to the park, and authorities speculated the girl could have been trying to find it because she enjoyed being there so much.
UPDATE I: Girl missing in Marin County park found safe.
Authorities announced Saturday morning that a nine-year-old girl who had gone missing in Samuel P. Taylor State Park in Marin County has been found safe.
9-year-old Ida Rothschild was found shortly before 9 a.m. by a couple mountain bikers cycling on a trail in the park. One of cyclists who found her told KTVU she heard the girl shouting for help on hillside.
Authorities made the official announcement that the girl had been found safe just after 10 a.m.
89 Year Old British Royal Navy Vet Bernard Jordan Goes Missing from The Pines Nursing Home in Sussex, England … Found Safe at 70th Anniverary D-Day Ceremonies in Normandy, France (VIDEO)
IF THERE COULD EVER BE CALLED A GOOD MISSING PERSON’S CASE, THIS WOULD BE IT … A MILITARY VET GOES ON ONE MORE MISSION!
We do so many missing person cases that end in tragedy, heartbreak and unbelievable sorrow. However, the following one just might be one of the more inspirational stories ever.
89 year old British Royal Navy veteran Bernard Jordan went missing Thursday, June 5, 2014 from The Pines nursing home in Sussex, England in the town of Hove. Police were called on Thursday night when the nursing home staff realized Jordan was missing. He had gone out at 10.30am and had not been seen since. However, this missing person story is not your typical one, what would one expect from a 90 year old military vet on a mission? What a story of perseverance and epitomizes yet another reason why those who fought in World War II are called our “Greatest Generation”.
It would appear that veteran Bernard Jordan was determined to get to the 70th D-Day commemorations in Normandy on Friday so he snuck away from his nursing home without warning and made his way across the English Chanel to Normandy, France. Mr. Jordan slipped out of the nursing home wearing a gray raincoat; however, underneath he had his military jacket complete with war medals. Eventually, Bernard Jordan contacted the Hove police to tell them that he was okay and will be returning after the D-Day ceremonies.
A police spokesman earlier said: “We have spoken to the veteran who called the home today and are satisfied that the pensioner is fine and that his friends are going to ensure he gets back to Hove safely over the next couple of days after the D-Day celebrations finish.”
Some reports had stated that the nursing home would not allow the vet to attend the D-Day ceremonies; however, that does not seem to be the case. It is more like they had tried at the last minute to get him to attend on an accredited tour to Normandy, but failed. So what was any determined veteran to do but find a way to improvise, adapt and overcome. This may be the last D-Day remembrance ceremony that Bernard Jordan ever has an opportunity to attend. For his will to accomplish his mission, we say KUDOS!!! I second Patterico ‘s Pontification comment that “I love this story more than words can say.” What a metaphor for the “Greatest Generation”.
“Mr. Jordan has full capacity, which means that he can come and go from the home as he pleases, which he does on most days” Peter Curtis, chief executive of Gracewell Healthcare told the BBC.
“At no stage was he banned from going to the commemorations,” Curtis added.
Staff members at the home had actually tried to get Jordan on an accredited tour with the Royal British Legion but he made his request too late so it wasn’t possible.
Les Hamilton, another former mayor of Hove who knows Jordan, told the BBC the vet had attended the 50th and 60th memorial services in Normandy.
“The memorial services meant a lot to him. He clearly didn’t want to miss what might be his last one,” Hamilton said.
A D-Day veteran who went “AWOL” from his care home to see Friday’s commemorations in France has returned to a hero’s welcome.
Bernard Jordan, 90, was cheered and hugged by staff waving Union Flags at The Pines nursing home in Hove, Sussex.
“I had a great time. I’m really pleased I did it,” he said after the Brittany Ferries ship Normandie arrived in Portsmouth.
Quizzed on whether he would go back next year, he replied: “Yes, I expect so. If I am still here, definitely!”
The former Royal Navy officer said his wife had known about his trip.
God Bless you Bernard Jordan.

According to reports, authorities say that Garcia was dating the mother of the unidentified victim in 2004 when the suspect assaulted and drugged her mother, then abducted the teenager and held her captive against her will at his his house in Compton, California. Garcia forced the girl to marry him in 2007 and she gave birth to a child in 2012. Isidro Garcia of Bell Gardens was arrested and booked for 209(b)(1) PC – Kidnap for Rape, 288(c)(1) PC – Lewd Act With Minor and 273(a) PC – False Imprisonment.
The woman initially went to police in Bell Gardens to report a domestic dispute, according to Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
It was during that conversation she told officers she that was a missing person who had been kidnapped.
“She was in fact taken and held against her will for the past 10 years,” according to Bertagna.
Isidro Garcia was taken into custody on Tuesday on suspicion of kidnapping for rape, lewd acts with a minor and false imprisonment, the Santa Ana Police Department announced Wednesday.
The victim was 15 years old in August 2004, when her mother reported that her daughter and the her live-in boyfriend went missing “after a domestic violence incident.”
The mother believed her partner, Garcia, had been sexually abusing the teen, but had no proof, according to police.

Santa Ana PD Detectives locate missing person after 10 years victim of kidnap and sexual assault
In August of 2004, a 15-year-old was reported missing to the Santa Ana Police Department by her mother. The mother reported that her daughter went missing along with her cohabitant boyfriend, Isidro Garcia, after a domestic violence incident. At the time, the mother suspected Garcia of sexually abusing her daughter; however she had no evidence to support this belief.
On 5-20-14, the Victim, now 25-years-old, disclosed the circumstances of her disappearance to law enforcement.
The victim said in June of 2004, while living with her mother and sisters at 811 S. Fairview in Santa Ana, Isidro Garcia began sexually assaulting her. In August of 2004, after Garcia assaulted her mother, Garcia drugged the victim and drove her to a house in Compton. There, Garcia provided the victim with falsified identity documents and locked her overnight in a garage to prevent the victim from fleeing. Over the course of the following months and years, Garcia repeatedly told the victim her family had given up looking for her, and if she tried to go back to them, the family would be deported. The two moved on several occasions to avoid police detection. Garcia frequently physically and sexually assaulted the victim. Garcia arraigned for the two of them to receive employment at a night cleaning service, so he could keep a close eye on the victim.
