UPDATE 3/30 4:45 pm:
Authorities say a 13-year-old girl from Montrose, Mo., has been located and is safe. 13-year old Hannah Sue Kennish was found outside Albuquerque, N.M., according to Henry County authorities. In a briefing Monday afternoon, authorities said they discovered Hannah and the suspect, Raymond Vallia, 55, had communicated on social media, beginning about four months ago. Investigators discovered in her social media accounts that Hannah’s meeting with Vallia on Sunday was likely a planned event. Authorities believe Vallia traveled from Texas to Missouri to meet Hannah. When asked if Hannah knew the man’s age, Major Hills said initially she probably did not initially. Hannah disappeared from her Montrose, Missouri, home sometime between 8:00 and 10:15 a.m. Sunday. Authorities say that the back door to the house was found open by the teen’s mother, and a search of the area came up empty. Montrose is about 80 miles southeast of Kansas City, between Butler and Clinton. (Scroll down page for map.) About 400 people live in Montrose. The FBI is with Vallia in New Mexico. Henry County prosecutor planned to seek criminal charges of child abduction or kidnapping.
