Young Jakadrien ran away from home when she was 14-years-old after the divorce of her parents and the death of her grandfather.
Jakadrien’s grandmother, Lorene Turner, said she had been searching for her granddaughter on Facebook since her disappearance.
She told WFAA-TV in Dallas:
“Once I get home I am up until 3 or 4 in the morning searching and looking. It’s all I can think about. Finding my baby,”
With the help of the Dallas police, Turner found her granddaughter Jakadrien in Colombia.
Apparently, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had deported Jakadrien in April of 2011.
After Jakadrien ran away she made her way to Houston, where she was arrested for theft and then gave the police a fake name.
When police ran the name, it belonged to a 22-year-old illegal immigrant from Colombia who had several warrants.
The ICE took Jakadrien’s fingerprints but didn’t go all the way to confirm her identify and deported her. The Colombian government released her after giving her a work card.
“She talked about how they had her working in this big house cleaning all day, and how tired she was,” said her grandmother.
Turner eventually found Jakadrien using Facebook with the help of U.S. Embassy officials.
But the teen is still locked away in a detention center in Colombia and there is no date set for when – or if – she will be released.
ICE says it is investigating the matter.
