Three Missing American Teenage Girls from Denver, CO Detained by FBI in Germany in Attempting to Join ISIS
It started out as a missing persons runaway report, with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, and then turned into something more bizarre and sinister …
Three America teens from Denver, Colorado who were reported missing have been found. According to FOX News, the three teens have been detained by the FBI in Germany attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Reported by VOA, the girls had vanished from their homes last week and traveled from Colorado to Chicago, and then Frankfurt. The girls have not been identified, but law enforcement officials said two are sisters, 15 and 17 years old, and one is 16 years old. The two sisters are from Somalia and the 16 year old is from Sudan.
The FBI says it is investigating the possibility that three American teenage girls were attempting to join the Islamic State in Syria when they were detained in Germany.
A law enforcement source told Fox News Tuesday that the girls are home in Colorado after they were tracked down in Frankfurt. The three girls are all under the age of 18 and are not expected to face charges. Two of the girls are of Somali descent and one is of Sudanese descent, according to the source.
ABC News reported that a law enforcement official said the girls were planning to travel to Syria to join militant groups. The official told ABC News the teenagers planned “to fulfill what they believe is some vision that has been put out on a slick media campaign.”
This is part of a worrisome trend of “disaffected youth” who are being radicalized, the official said, pointing to the wider phenomenon of foreign fighters converging on the conflict in the region.
There have been other cases of high school age kids trying to get to Syria that haven’t been made public, the official said.
The girls were persuaded to travel overseas and were in contact with someone in Germany, the official said, noting that someone close to them notified authorities.
They were turned around and sent back to the United States, the official said, noting that because they are minors it remains unclear whether they will be charged with anything or be “arrested.”
The FBI has spoken to the teens and interviewed their families, and the agency said at this point they are not facing any charges. WHAT!!! HOW ARE THEY NOT FACING ANY CHARGES!!! WHY, BECAUSE THEY ARE TEEN GIRLS?

Rico Harris has been missing for several weeks during a trip between Alhambra and Seattle.
Harris, a former member of the Harlem Globetrotters, reportedly left his mother’s home in Southern California on Oct. 10. His car was later found abandoned at Yolo County Regional State Park on Route 16.
The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department says there is no indication of anything criminal at this time. No leads were found from inspecting Harris’ car, as it looks like the car was just parked in the parking lot and had been left for two days.
Harris set out on road trip from Alhambra, California, to Seattle at 1 am on October 10, 2014. He was last heard from at 9.30am that day when he called his mother from Sacramento. According to Harris’ family, the 6-foot-9, 280-pound former Globetrotter was in the process of moving to the northwest to join his long-time girlfriend, Jennifer Song, and start a new job in sales.
About nine hours into the drive, Mr Harris called his mother from the Sacramento area, and just before 11am he called his girlfriend and left her a voice-mail. He has not been heard from since.
On October 13, a sheriff’s deputy came upon Harris’ vehicle parked at the Yolo County Regional Parks Lower Site near Cache Creek. When officials ran the Nissan’s registration, they discovered that the car belonged to the missing man.
A ground search of the surrounding area turned up Rico Harris’ cell phone and a backpack with jumper cables. Deputies informed the missing man’s family that his car battery has dead.

UPDATE I: Police Searching for Missing 7-Year-Old Girl.
Community members have gathered at the Topper’s Pizza restaurant, which is serving as a headquarters for the search. A large pizza delivery map is being used to help plot out the search areas. Searchers are being sent out in small groups to comb the neighborhood and wooded areas.
“At this point the map is actually a delivery map for Topper’s, so it’s got the quadrants, so it’s helping us quite a bit being able to divide the groups up between 4 and 6 people,” said organizer and family friend Melissa Toch.
About 80 to 100 community members have joined the search effort, and more are expected to join during the daylight. People are handing out fliers with Lilleona’s photo and information on the little girl.
