PAGOSA SPRINGS, Colo. — The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has deactivated a Missing Indigenous Person Alert (MIPA) for a teen who disappeared in southwestern Colorado last week.
According to the alert, the 14-year-old had last been seen in the area of 5th and 6th streets in Pagosa Springs at around 9 p.m. Friday.
The alert said he was evading law enforcement.
On Wednesday, CBI said the alert had been deactivated because the teen was found safe.
It was the second MIPA to be issued since the program was created in Colorado by legislation passed in 2022. The legislation also expanded investigations into cases of missing and murdered Indigenous people.
