Police locate missing Alpine teen

ALPINE, Utah – The Lone Peak Police Department announced Friday evening that 16-year-old Indica Huddleston, who has been missing since Aug. 16, has been found.

According to a statement from the LPPD, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Friday, the police were able to locate Huddleston in the Salt Lake Valley. She has been found safe and has been returned to her parents. No additional details were provided. 

Shortly after her disappearance, Huddleston’s parents  found a note in her room indicating she was frustrated, and would be taken care of. Because of this the teen was originally reported as a runaway, which prevented the use of the statewide Amber Alert system.

Heavily involved in social media, Huddleston’s parents worried that she left home to meet someone she knew over Facebook and could have been taken against her will at some point. 

The Lone Peak Police had considered elevating Huddleston’s status to endangered on Thursday.

Lone Peak Police would like to thank the local FBI for their assistance in helping us bring this to a quick resolution,” the LPPD statement reads. “We would also like to thank all of the other agencies and people involved in trying to locate Indica, including the Polly Klaas Foundation and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.”

    Glad she is back home with her parents but just a question. Why are we here in St. George, hundreds of miles away from this incident area being made aware of this? If proximity is an issue shouldn’t we share alerts with Mesquite and Las Vegas as well which are hundreds of miles closer.? Just saying.

    If Mesquite and Las Vegas were apart of Utah and their laws were the same you would have a valid theory. But dI’d you forget? Those cities fall under Nevada jurisdiction.

    This is a win!
    Kudos to agencies like the Polly Klaas Foundation and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
