A 13-year-old Stephenville girl missing for about 10 days has been found.

Lt. James Gresham with the Stephenville Police Department told Beneath the Surface News that Kaylee Raye Cagle was located unharmed in Hurst on Monday.

“I don’t have a lot of details at this point, but Hurst police were called to a residence and Kaylee was there,” Gresham said. “They were unsure of her identity so they took her to the police station and that’s when they discovered that she was reported missing.”

Kaylee’s family has been notified and is on their way now to Hurst.

“We are continuing to investigate her disappearance and we will file appropriate charges, but that’s going to take some time,” Gresham said.

A 10-DAY SEARCH

Kaylee was reported missing on Aug. 15 by her father who told police that she had last been seen the day before.

Investigators worked with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to publicize her disappearance.

This is the second time in a little more than a year that Kaylee was reported missing.

In July 2019, her parents told police that she had disappeared from the family’s home and was later found in San Antonia with a man she had met online.

That man, Hakeem Ismaaeel Abdulrahim, 20, was interviewed last week by investigators and arrested again on charges related to the 2019 case.

He is expected to be brought back to Erath County to face charges in the coming days.
