20 year old detained in case of young teen’s brief disappearance

A 20-year-old man from  San Rafael Abajo de Desamparados has been detained for hiding a 13-year-old girl.

The girl had been reported missing Monday, and law enforcement issued a bulletin via the new alert system that reaches the country’s cell telephones.

The security ministry report is crediting the alert system for helping to locate the girl but the specifics are not public.

Agents detained the suspect Tuesday at the Coronado bus station on Avenida 7.

The case appears to stem from a love affair because the sex crimes prosecutor is now involved.
