Missing Hickman Mills Jr. High student safely located

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Police said Nateriel Beaver showed up at school Wednesday and appears to be fine. Capt. Tye Grant with Kansas City Police said so far, she has refused to talk to officers or say where she was.


Kansas City police are looking for a missing 15-year-old Hickman Mills Junior High School student, last seen on Friday, February 28.

Nateriel Beaver has brown hair and eyes, is 5-foot-6 and weighs about 135 pounds. She was last seen getting off a school bus around 3 p.m. in the 7300 block of E. 109th Street.

She was last seen wearing a sheer, cream-colored shirt, a cropped denim jacket, a purple pea coat and pink Nike tennis shoes.

"Not to know where your child is at or what's going on with your child, it's very disturbing. It can drive you crazy," Nateriel's mother Kimberly Frost said.

Frost called the police and rallied her friends for support, but her daughter's story did not get attention until she traded the pavement for the world wide web.

"Put flyers on Facebook and they've been going through Twitter," Frost said. "Now it's like the calls are finally coming in."

Mayor Sly James even retweeted a flyer of her daughter, grabbing the attention of local media outlets as well as father and state senator Greg Smith who went through the nightmare of losing a daughter after she was abducted and murdered.

"If you look now at any missing persons case that the media picks up on," Smith said, "that's one of the first things you hear about, it's a Facebook page, Instagram or something."

While police don't have any leads at this time, the efforts of those who love the missing teen prevail on all platforms with a mission to bring Nateriel home.

If you have any information regarding her whereabouts, please call the tips hotline at 816-474-TIPS or the Crimes Against Children Section at 816-234-5150.
