When FBI officials raided the Montana apartment Alicia Navarro had been sharing with an unnamed guy last week, neighbors told The Washington Post that Alicia Navarro dropped her head and covered her eyes like she was crying.
Alicia Navarro Taken Off the Missing People List.
Four years after going missing from her parents’ Arizona home in Glendale in 2019, Navarro, 18, entered a police station in Havre on July 23 and wanted to be taken off the missing people list.
The FBI promptly set up a stakeout of Navarro’s building, according to locals in the Montana neighborhood where she had most recently lived, before closing in with armed officers, reports New York Post.
Ron Turner, a neighbor who is 69 years old, told The Post that three Havre police [cars] drew up out of the building, and they all got out with their guns drawn and walked into the apartment last Wednesday. FBI agents joined the raid with assault rifles and Kevlar vests.
Turner claimed that the men left the residence “cuffed,” after which they put the man in a police car and drove off.
Neighbor Shared What Happened
He stated that the girl is brought out five to ten minutes later. He said to his wife that the girl seemed very young when they brought her out. He had no idea that she was of legal age, but she certainly didn’t appear to be.
She seemed OK when she initially came out, he remarked, shielding his eyes with his hands. She continued to hide her eyes in this manner for a time. She appeared to be crying as she bowed her head and covered her entire face, including her eyes.
Turner claimed that at one time, officers with evidence-gathering tools entered the home.
Though it is unknown if the man was the same person Navarro had shared the Havre flat with, police announced on Friday that he had been detained and questioned in relation to her disappearance.
After identifying herself to police last week, Navarro said she was well and even thanked them for their assistance, reports in GMA.
She is, however, being handled as a victim, according to the police.
