Missing Kennewick teenager found safe in Mexico

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A missing Kennewick teenager was found safe in Mexico on Tuesday, nearly a week after the girl disappeared and an Amber Alert was issued.

Elizabeth Romero, 14, went missing last Wednesday. Police believe 19-year-old Edwardo Flores Rosales abducted her and fled to Mexico.

On Tuesday evening, Chelan County Emergency Management officials announced that Romero was found safe in Mexico. KNDO says police confirmed Tuesday that the mother of Elizabeth Romero spoke with her daughter by phone and the girl said she is in Jalisco, Mexico.

Police say there is still a warrant out for the arrest of 19-year-old Edwardo Fabien Flores Rosales for investigation of second-degree kidnapping. Officers are also looking for a second person suspected of aiding Rosales.

Investigators say Romero has family in Jalisco and her mother is working to get her daughter connected with those relatives.

Police say the girl and Rosales met through Facebook. The girl was last seen Wednesday getting into his car.
