Police in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, confirmed that a missing girl who was the subject of an Operation Quickfind alert.
Authorities issued the alert Tuesday, December 8 for 11-year-old Naomi Makor, who had last been seen early morning. Cedar Rapids police Sgt. Jason Weininger confirmed to CrimeOnline on Monday that Naomi had been found within two days of the alert being issued, apparently safe and uninjured. Naomi is believed to have been in the company of an adult sibling at the time she was reported missing, and Weininger said his department believed Naomi’s brief disappearance was the result of miscommunication, not an attempted abduction.
The sergeant also confirmed that Naomi is the sibling of a 12-year-old boy who went briefly missing in October, but was also found safely after an Operation Quickfind alert.
Police believe the brief disappearances in both instances were the result of “family tensions” but do not appear to have any evidence suggesting either child is or was in any danger.
