A warrant with nationwide authorization has been issued for runaway juvenile Rylee Krueger, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday, May 16.
At about around 6 p.m. on May 11, deputies were dispatched to a runaway juvenile investigation in the 3000 block of N State Route 89, Prescott. The father of Krueger, age 16, reported his daughter ran away sometime after 9 p.m. on May 10. She is on active probation and had removed her GPS device before leaving. The GPS unit was found in her bedroom.
She was last seen wearing blue jeans with holes in the fabric, white tennis shoes and a long sleeved top. She has been despondent in the past and there is concern for her welfare. She also has several adult male friends she continues to associate with, which causes additional concern for her guardians.
Deputies checked a location in Paulden in the 25000 block of Robin Drive where an apparent boyfriend of Rylee’s resides. Deputies confirmed she had been there and left on foot with her boyfriend after hearing deputies were searching for her.
The next day, deputies were able to speak with the boyfriend, who claimed she had since left the area headed for Phoenix, possibly in a red Honda Civic. Deputies continue to follow up with leads in this case.
She also has family in the Verde Valley area.
Family and friends simply want to make sure Rylee is safe and encourage to her to make contact.
