Police: Lubbock girl's disappearance was not criminal

MOORE COUNTY, TX (KFDA) - The Colorado Springs Police Department's Violent Crimes Section has completed its preliminary investigation into the disappearance of Lubbock 13-year-old Adalie Rivera, who was found safe in Dumas, TX on Tuesday.

Below is their statement on the latest in the investigation:

"Adalie left her Colorado Springs hotel room on March 17, 2017, at approximately 6:30 a.m. She made her way to a coal train in the Colorado Springs Metro area, which she boarded and traveled to a farm community near Dumas, Texas. She got off the train covered in coal dust and was hungry after running out of Skittles. She was found by a local farmer who notified the Moore County Sheriff's Department. The Sheriff's Department responded and took custody of Adalie until family members were able to retrieve her. At this point of the investigation, there is no reason to believe Adalie's disappearance was criminal."

Police say Rivera was on vacation with her family in Colorado Springs, CO when she took her suitcase and left the hotel while everyone was sleeping.
