Missing Ariz. Teen Found Crossing The Border
A missing teen was recovered by U.S. Border Patrol agents at a checkpoint in Arizona on Dec. 7, nearly two weeks after she walked out of her Mesa home.
Thirteen-year-old Brittnee Plant and a male juvenile companion had spent a week in Mexico.
As Brittnee and her friend returned to the U.S., the young man provided Border agents with a false name.
A computer check revealed that a warrant was associated with the alias and agents acted swiftly to positively ID the two runaways.
Brittnee soon admitted to an agent that Mesa police were looking for her.
