In a subsequent bulletin and on social media, another man was identified as the suspect. According to a spokesperson for the Missouri City Police Department,
that person has also been ruled out after he went to the police station on his own to clear his name.
The older of the two men was 28, while the younger of the two was 21. They are related by the fact that they have the same last name.
To make matters worse, the woman Imani now lives with believes that the girl ran away with a man she met online.
Neither her belongings nor her phone was taken, according to Imani’s grandmother, who claimed she escaped from the second-floor window by climbing out of bed sheets.
According to family members, the girl also ran away on July 9.
Through “Find My Phone,” they were able to locate her.
Additionally, a more senior man was rumored to be in her company at the time. If you read more latest updates or news so you can visit ThaActiveNews.Com.
