Endangered Missing : Heber, California

From Heber, California Since September 9, 2012 Please Help Find Kaelynne Paez

Imperial County authorities have called in the FBI to help find a 13-year-old Heber girl missing since Sunday under what investigators call suspicious circumstances.

Kaelynne Paez, age 13, was last seen in her home on Heber Avenue at about 9 a.m. on September 9, 2012. Her brother reported her missing at 1:40 p.m.

She is described as 5’5” tall, weighing 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth with the FBI field office in San Diego said investigators are looking for 13-year-old Kaelynne Paez, a teen from Heber, Calif., just north of the Mexican border.

Foxworth wouldn’t go into details, but says Paez may have met someone online.

Several online profiles on adult dating websites appear to have been created by Paez.

One profile featuring a photo that resembles Paez also includes this quote in the “About Me” section: “I’m Kaelynne…I love to box, play basketball, hang out, meet new people and yeah I’m single.”

That profile also claims she’s 19 years old, lives in El Centro and is interested in meeting men between the ages of 18 and 25.

"There have been situations in the past, cases that have been investigated... that the FBI's been involved in where you have a teenager that meets someone, [they] go away with them and when they are ready to leave, they find out, I can't leave," said Foxworth.

Investigators said it’s possible that Paez may have been targeted by an online predator and could be in the company of someone she doesn’t really know.

If you have information on Kaelynne’s whereabouts, please contact ICSO Investigator Lankford at (760) 339-6311, or the FBI at (858) 565-1255.
