UPDATE – The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office launched a large response for missing 12-year-old Katherine Gould. At around 7 p.m., the Colorado Bureau of Investigation says she’s been found and is safe.
A statewide alert was issued Tuesday evening – March 2 – for a missing 12-year-old girl in Colorado.
Katherine Gould was last seen in Parker Tuesday morning at about 8:30. She was riding her bike to school in the area of Stonegate Parkway and Haseley Drive, but never arrived. The school is a 5 min ride from her home. At about 5:35 p.m. the Colorado Bureau of Investigation sent out a statewide alert.
At the time she went missing, Gould was wearing dark-colored clothes, a sweatshirt, gray shoes and a black backpack with a blue/gray computer bag. She was riding a gray “Trek” bike with a black seat.
Sheriff Tony Spurlock says they have no reason to believe she is a runaway and says she’s never runaway before. He adds investigators have not found her bike and says she left her cellphone at home.
Spurlock says there’s no information about a possible vehicle, so they cannot issue an Amber Alert. However, he says his office worked with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to classify this case as a Missing Endangered Child case.
Spurlock says Katherine’s parents are cooperating and are very concerned.
