'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

An 18-year-old mentally challenged woman who was reported missing has returned home safely, police said.

Lisa Faith Flowers of Hempfield was reported missing Tuesday after she left the area with a young man and his father from Kansas, according to Trooper Steve Limani.

“From our preliminary investigation, it appears there wasn't any criminal intent on behalf of the younger man and his father when they came to pick her up,” Limani said.

Someone from Kansas contacted the father to tell him that Flowers was reported missing in Pittsburgh, so he stopped in Lewisburg, Ohio, and contacted local police, Limani said.

Flowers was reunited with her family and no charges will be filed, Limani said.

Limani said the young man, whose age was not available, and Flowers had communicated for more than a month online.
