Jakadrien Turner: Deported Texas Teen Returns to U.S.
Source: ABC News

An American-born teen from Texas who told law enforcement officials that she was a 21-year-old Colombian woman and ended up deported to that South American nation was returned to her waiting family at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Jakadrien Turner, 15, was reunited with her mother Friday night, ABC News' Dallas affiliate WFAA reported.

"After they said she was on the plane, I didn't hear anything else they were saying. I'm going to hug her tight and let her know we love her, and everything's going to be alright," grandmother Lorene Turner told WFAA, which broke the news of Jakadrien's fluke deportation.

Dana Ames, of Urban Search and Rescue, which also helped locate Jakadrien said finding the teen is a "tremendous blessing for the family."

1. Bizzare yes but
I hope someone talks to the teen to find out why she went to such lengths to be sure no one knew who she was. I know grief can make people do strange thing but this is way out there. Not giving the govt a pass here, just seems there is more to the teen's story than we are hearing.

2. There must be more to this, think we've only heard the bare facts.
Why did the child run away and are there issues within the family? The news media makes it sound like this is just a happy reunion, but it's so outside the realm of common experience that there must be a follow-up to the story, unless the excitement of the Republican Primary eclipses everything else in the news... :eyes: :rofl: :hi:
