KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An organization dedicated to helping victims of sexual exploitation confirmed Wednesday that Cassandra Lafave, 25, was found in Kansas City.
Lafave was reported missing from Wisconsin on Nov. 20. Authorities believed she may have been in the Kansas City or St. Louis areas.
According to Kristy Childs, founder of Veronica’s Voice in Kansas City, an anonymous person called the organization on Friday, Nov. 22, with information that would lead authorities to Lafave’s location.
Childs said she called police and relayed the information. According to Childs, when police arrived, Lafave had already left.
“We did receive a tip that she may have been in town and we followed up on it,” Tye Grant with the Kansas City Police Department wrote in an email to FOX 4. “We could not locate her, but did contact other jurisdictions to pass on the possibility that the young lady may be headed their way.”
On Wednesday, Nov. 27, police is West Allis, Wisc., confirmed she was located in West Allis unharmed.
According to a Facebook page set up to help find her, some feared Lafave may have been taken as part of a sex trafficking ring. The Facebook page has since expressed appreciation toward Veronica’s Voice in their assistance in locating Lafave.
