A car driven by two Missouri teenagers who were missing for nine days reportedly was impounded by Omaha, Neb., police the day after they ran away.
Citing documents uncovered by one of the teen's parents, KSHB-TV reported Wednesday that Omaha police towed the car to an impound lot Oct. 18th. The car remained in the lot despite an all-points bulletin in an FBI database and a statewide AMBER Alert in Missouri.
Sixteen-year-old Levi Carlson of Holt and 14-year-old Paige Alley of Lathrop were found under a bridge in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Sunday.
Omaha Police Lt. Marci Tierney said "Obviously there's been some sort of a communication lapse, whether it's on our end or their end."
