iphone Teen Found Dead After Apparently Texting OMG I Think Im Being KidnappedA 14-year-old Michigan girl was found dead after taking her dog for a walk. Between the time that she left her house and her body was found, she apparently texted her boyfriend, “OMG.. I think I’m being kidnapped,” Fox Detroit reports.

A police chief told Fox he could confirm that the message was sent from victim April Millsap’s phone but wouldn’t go into further detail.

“Obviously we’re taking it with that in mind. However, we just know that it came from April’s cell phone,” he’s quoted as saying. “Other than that, we’re not commenting.”

April was murdered while walking her dog along the Macomb Orchard trail in Michigan, Fox says. The police department is circulating a sketch of a person of interest in the case and they ask that anyone with any information call them.
