Amber Alert for Texas teen canceled in Kansas

By The Mercury

An Amber Alert for a missing Texas teen believed to be in Kansas was canceled Wednesday morning.

Nacogdoches County in eastern Texas requested the alert for Nomei Velazquez, 15, Tuesday night.

The girl had been missing since Monday.

The alert went to Kansas because the girl’s cell phone was last pinged on I-35 northbound near Lenexa.

The alert was canceled at 9:28 a.m. today, because the girl and the man whom authorities believe she’s traveling with are no longer thought to be in Kansas, according to the Kansas Amber Alert website.
