Missing Teen Girl Mistakenly Deported to Colombia

Posted: Jan 06, 2012

The missing Dallas teen who was mistakenly deported to Colombia was repatriated to the United States on Friday, reports Univision. American runaway Jakadrien Turner, 14, gave police a false name when she was arrested for theft in Houston in 2010. During her court case and deportation process, authorities mistakenly believed her to be 21-year-old Colombian Tika Lanay Cortez. Colombian authorites put her in protective custody and released Turner to U.S. officials on Friday.
