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.

Trenton Deputy Police Chief Mike Oakley told the News-Herald that Hall's attorney reached out to the police department to organize a meeting. He also mentioned there has not been a case in his recent memory in which a teenager returned after being missing for so long with an attorney.

Police said over the investigation "numerous" leads were pursued and "several partnering agencies" were involved.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children assisted with this case from the start. If you have a missing child or a tip on any other case involving a missing child, please contact the center directly: 800-THE-LOST
