The Idaho State Journal reported that Jennifer Schwindt was found in good health in the local area. Police said their investigation revealed that the teen likely ran away from home.
“Since the day she was reported missing, officers and support staff with the Chubbuck Police Department have spent countless hours following up on leads and conducting interviews. This was an all hands on deck case and we are glad to report that she has been found,” a news release stated.
An Idaho teen remains missing nearly two weeks after she reportedly vanished from her family home without her cellphone.
According to the Idaho State Journal, Jennifer Schwindt, 17, was reported missing on April 3 after she disappeared from her Chubbuck home the night before. The girl’s mother, Leslie Egbert, told the outlet that local police interviewed her daughter’s friends and co-workers but have limited leads.
Egbert claimed Schwindt might be in a relationship with a man based off messages on her phone. However, she said the messages haven’t provided much, if any, insight into Schwindt’s whereabouts.
In a Facebook post, Egbert wrote that her daughter was corresponding with a man named Steven who is possibly Middle Eastern and could be “trying to get her into an adult industry.”
She told the Journal that her daughter doesn’t have a history of running away.
“We keep coming up empty-handed,” Egbert said. “Anything is possible at this point. I just want her home.”
Schwindt was described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, and having green eyes and blonde hair.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding Jennifer Schwindt’s location is asked to call the Chubbuck Police Department at 208-237-7172.
