Missing 15-year-old Grand Forks girl found in Minot library

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - A 15-year-old who was reported missing after not showing up at the Grand Forks Amtrak station this morning was found in the Minot library, Grand Forks detective Mike Flannery said.

Minot Police Sgt. Winston Black said the girl was a runaway and is now in the care of authorities.

Anishawfe Kramer boarded a train in Williston at around 7 p.m. Monday and was scheduled to arrive in Grand Forks in the early morning hours today, but her relatives who went to meet her did not find her there, said the girl's aunt, Stella Kramer-Brown.

Kramer-Brown, of Grand Forks, said Amtrak officials searched the train and did not find her niece, but found her luggage and wallet by her seat. Surveillance video did not show the girl getting off the train, Kramer-Brown said. Minot is a stop on the train's route.

Kramer-Brown said her niece lives with foster parents in Grand Forks and had gone to Williston to visit her mother.

A message left for Kramer-Brown was not immediately returned this afternoon.
