Woman Reported Missing in Michigan Found Walking Barefoot in Texas


LAREDO, TX — A woman who had been reported missing in Michigan was found walking barefoot with her baby on a ranch in South Texas by Border Patrol agents Saturday, July 6, 2024, according to the United States Border Patrol.

The woman and infant were discovered by agents from the Laredo North Border Patrol Station near the Interstate 35 checkpoint. The pair had been reported missing three days earlier to police in the town of Wyoming, Michigan.

The woman reportedly stated she ran out of gas while traveling to South Padre Island. 

The woman and child were taken to a local hospital for medical evaluation by a Webb County Sheriff's Deputy. They were later returned to Michigan by their family.

“I thank the United States Border Patrol for their quick response, and I commend my deputies for their efforts in coordinating with the woman's family to ensure her and her baby's safety. Let this serve as a reminder to everyone to stay vigilant and report any suspicious activity,” said Webb County Sheriff Martin Cuellar.
