In a training course for internet crimes against children. Just found out that Facebook bans registered sex offenders from having Facebook profiles. I applaud their efforts! Here is the link to report them. You must be able to prove they are one (link to sex offender website, online news article, etc.).

Nothing is 100%, but we can all work together to make it harder for sex offenders to look at, download and talk to our children.

Please share.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office continues to search for Brittany Johnson. Brittany was last seen near Mountain and Broadway Blvd on May 9, 2015 at 11:23 AM. She got into her red 2006 Toyota Corolla and drove east towards I-25. We believe she drove north out of Albuquerque on I-25, where she made a call on her cell phone. Her phone was near I-25 and the Budaghers exit between Albuquerque and Santa Fe at about 2:30 PM that same day. She made a phone call and then it appears her phone shut off and did not generate any other locations or activity. On May 13, 2015 we found her vehicle parked at the top of Crest Road in the Sandia Mountains. It was in a popular area that gets visited daily by day hikers, scenic viewers and fitness enthusiasts. We are asking for the public's help for anyone that was at the top of the Crest between Saturday May 9, 2015 and Wednesday morning May 14, 2015 and might have seen her vehicle or Brittany to please contact the Sheriff's department. They can call or text 505-886-1065 with information.

Three Women, Gone for Years, Found in Ohio

This is why we never give up on our missing persons. And neither should you! Happy they are back with their families and these predators are in a place where they can't do this again.

Three women who disappeared separately about a decade ago, when they were in their teens or early 20s, were found alive in a residential area near downtown Cleveland, and three men were arrested.

02/11/2013

Last year in Bernalillo County, there were over 450 reports of missing people. Our Missing Person Unit, No Falta, will be expanding to utilize not only detectives, but patrol deputies to help find the missing persons, and try to help fix what made them leave in the first place.

Did you know there are no time requirements before you can report someone missing (for example, waiting 24 hours before calling the police)? The longer you wait, the less chance we might have to find them safely.

What other myths have you heard about calling the police about a missing person?

02/03/2013

We have located family of the girl! Thank you all for your help! Like this if you want to keep updated on all of Bernalillo County's missing people.
