Dean’s parents announced on the “Help Find Anji” Facebook page early Thursday morning that their daughter had. They said a vigil scheduled to be held for Dean might go on as scheduled but would be dedicated to other missing children.

“NEWS: We are thrilled to have our daughter back and so thankful she is safe,” they wrote. “Many missing children are not so lucky. Due to the number of people that were expected to attend the vigil for Angi, we are considering still holding the vigil of hope for all the other children still missing that need our voices and prayers.”


2. Cops Said She Was Involved in a Trafficking Operation

According to The Columbian, cops confirmed Dean was caught up in a trafficking operation. Dean’s family had been working with the Vancouver-based National Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Exploitation to help find their daughter. Michelle Bart, president of the organization, told The Camas Washougal Post-Record:

What we see traditionally is if you’re running away from home because you don’t like the rules or you’re running away from something, that’s not against the law, but those types of individuals will take something with them. If you’re being lured away, you are told to leave things behind so that nobody can track you. That’s the difference.

Bart told The Columbian stories like Dean’s typically don’t have happy endings. She said:

Today’s a good day. Today’s a great day. This doesn’t happen too often. (The coalition) has been to more funerals than happy times like today.

A spokesperson for Dean’s family told KGW she was found at the Clackamas Town Center shopping mall in Happy Valley, Ore. around 4 p.m. Wednesday. The mall is only 21 miles south of Dean’s hometown, Camas, Wash.

A woman from Milwaukie, Ore., who only wanted to be identified as Jennifer, spend several hours with Dean at the mall, according to KGW. The woman said Dean told her, “she was in a bad situation and needed to get out,” and asked that Jennifer call her Daisy, after giving the woman her real name.

According to KGW, Dean had told teachers and guidance counselors at Camas High School that she was, “in something that she couldn’t get out of.” Dean’s mother, Lynda Jorgenson, told the Camas-Washougal Post-Record she assumed her daughter’s changes in mood were typical of a 17-year-old girl, calling them, “teenage angst,” and “normal teenage girl depression.”

  1. Here’s a fact: little white girls shouldn’t get into cars with black men. At that point, you’re already into something you “can’y get out of.” This never turns out well, and I’ve got thousands of names and cases to prove it.

  2. Too true Anonymous. I have seen this in my town where a white girl gets in a vehicle with a black man or Hispanic man and they disappear. I blame parents and the school district for this. The schools tell the white girls that white boys are no good and black and Hispanic boys are it and the rest is history. I blame the parents because there is no way the parents do not know something. This guy may have even been at the house or spoken to them about their daughter. If you watch the video they don’t look like the brightest crayons in the box. I am not saying they deserved this but you got to quit watching tv and only paying attention to yourselves and start paying attention to your children. There are also needs to be an investigation into the school districts because I’ll bet you will find that other students, teachers, and administration know about this.

    An assistant principal down in San Diego made a written statement talking about how these people are coming right onto school property and taking teens and security and teachers know all about it and do nothing. You will notice that in the majority of cases they only take white girls. They are trying their best these elite in our country and abroad to destroy the white race. Very few who are sex trafficked are minorities.

    It is time to expose this conspiracy and make sure that it stopped. Our politicians are involved, so too are cops, judges, and of course teachers who should have never stepped into a classroom!

  3. Well fortunately, according to the latest posted on the FB page, this girl was found and is now back home with her parents.

  4. Why does it have to be because she got in to the car with a black man? Race has nothing to do with it! Not to be racist myself but its alot of European countries involved in the trafficking of humans! Ummmmm…….and considering crime recently in the US, its hard to say its just blacks and Hispanics , I see alot of whites killing lately, shooting their families up, schools, etc…… get over the whole race thing……..ALL NATIONALITIES ARE COMMITTING CRIMES!
