San Diego, CA– San Diego Police Department investigators Tuesday have called a missing 20-year-old Indiana woman ”at-risk” three weeks after trying to locate her in the San Diego area.
The change in status to “at-risk” was based on the totality of the circumstances, including the length of time Lateche Norris has been missing and the absence of anyone reporting verifiable contact with her, according to San Diego police.
Norris last had contact with her mother, Cheryl Walker on November 5 at a 7-11 convenience store in downtown San Diego. Norris reportedly used a stranger’s mobile phone to call her mother. Walker never heard back from her daughter after the call.
She had recently moved from Indiana to San Diego to meet with her boyfriend, 25-year-old Joseph Smith.
Walker reported her daughter missing to the San Diego Police Department on November 9. Authorities said there was no evidence to suggest she is the “victim of a crime at this time.”
San Diego police detectives are continuing their investigation of Norris’ disappearance.
