Missing Child Featured On ‘In Pursuit With John Walsh’ Found Safe
In July 2021, investigators said Amaria Hall walked into their police station to let them know she is okay and not missing anymore. Although Hall wouldn’t disclose where she’s been for more than two years, she is healthy and safe.
In 2020, "In Pursuit with John Walsh" brought you the case of missing 16-year-old Amaria Hall. Investigators said Hall disappeared without a trace from Michigan. Since that time Hall's mother and loved ones have been looking for her.
According to Fox 2 Detroit, April, Hall’s mother said, “I got 14 notebooks tracing my daughter from Trenton to Westland to Ypsi to Northwest Detroit.”
On July 31, 2021, Trenton Police in Michigan said Hall arrived at their department with an attorney. In an official Facebook post, the department said, "On July 31, 2021, the lead investigator met with Amaria and her attorney. Amaria is safe and in good health. Amaria's mother has been notified. Out of respect for the privacy of Amaria, who is now 18 years of age, and the judicial process, which lies in the hands of the 3rd Judicial Circuit, juvenile division, no further details will be provided."
Investigators said they aren't able to offer any more information on where Hall has been for two years or who she has been with.
