It now appears that the cops in Las Vegas are not buying Sarah Dunsey's tale of kidnap and sex trafficking. Sarah Dunsey was returned home on February 19, a few days after her mother, Amie Ellis, posted a YouTube video saying her daughter had been abducted. In the video, Amie Ellis says, "She is being held against her will and Sarah is a victim of sex trafficking. This is my absolute worst nightmare. We need Sarah home. We have to have her home. I cannot wonder where she is, and if she is safe. Please help us find her." Ellis also named a suspect in the clip but the name was redacted so as not to alert the suspect, according to the family. The suspect's name came from the last text sent by Dunsey.
The teenager disappeared on January 15 and was found a month later in Venice, California. Her mother said that it was an anonymous tip that led to Dunsey being discovered by her family members.
In a shocking report that emerged days after Dunsey was returned home, the Daily Mail says that Las Vegas cops say there's no evidence of the allegations. The LVPD told the newspaper that they were notified that Dunsey was missing until two weeks after her parents alleged she vanished.
Logan Police Department Captain Curtis Hooley told the Daily Mail, "It is unclear why Sarah's parents did not discuss her whereabouts between January 3 and January 16." Hooley went on to say that he is "unsure" of the closeness between Dunsey and her mother. Captain Hooley added that, "She left [the hotel in Las Vegas] with a couple of other males. She did not appear to be struggling. She didn't seem unwilling at all." While Officer Michael Rodriguez of the Las Vegas PD told the Daily Mail, "Her mother told us that she was taken by sex traffickers. We found that not to be true... There was no kidnap. She was not kidnapped in Las Vegas and as far as we are concerned, there is no evidence that any crime has occurred."
