    Police search for Bedford teen who vanished while walking her dog

    A 14-year-old from Bedford last seen walking her dog disappeared Monday night, Bedford police say.

    Police say there's no indication that Kaytlynn Cargill was abducted and they are investigating her disappearance as a runaway case.

    Kaytlynn's mother said her daughter went missing around 6:30 p.m. while walking the dog around the Oak Creek Apartments in Bedford.

    "I went out looking for her after she didn't come back for like 30 minutes," Trisha West said Tuesday. She found the dog tied to a fence at the nearby dog park.

    Anyone with information on the teen's whereabouts can call the Bedford Police Department at 817-952-2440.

    Unidentified body found in Arlington landfill
    • POSTED: JUN 21 2017 04:56PM CDT

      UPDATED: JUN 21 2017 09:47PM CDT

      A body was found in a landfill near the Arlington-Euless border on Wednesday afternoon.

      Bedford police were on the scene along with Arlington police combing through the trash surrounding the body. They were there to determine if the body was that of a 14-year-old girl who went missing two days ago.

      Police say a landfill employee discovered the body shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday.

    Bedford detectives have been looking for missing 14-year-old Kaytlynn Cargill, who was last seen near her Bedford home on Oak Creek Lane on Monday evening. They were knocking on doors on Wednesday and asking residents in the Oak Creek Apartment Complex if they have seen the missing teen.

    Kaytlynn’s family told police she went out to walk her dog around 6:20 p.m. and never came home.

    When police issued the missing person advisory on Tuesday, they said they did not have reason to believe Kaytlynn was in danger — and no Amber Alert was issued.

    Residents who live near the missing girl were shocked to hear about the investigation.

    "First thing I did was say a prayer,” said neighbor Carol Champion. “I said I hoped that they find her and she's ok. That's what I did. I was very hurt because nowadays you see things like that on TV. But when you see it in your own neighborhood, it kind of hurts."

    Bedford police will only confirm at this point that they are aware of the body at the landfill and are waiting for a positive ID.

    There are ways for the landfill to determine which truck dumped trash in which area of the landfill and where that truck made a pick up.

    Bedford police search for missing teen
    Police asked for help Wednesday in finding a missing teen who was last seen near her home.

    Kaytlynn Cargill, 14, is listed as a missing person, but detectives say they do not believe that she is in any danger or was abducted.

    For that reason, an Amber Alert has not been issued for Cargill. CBS News reported that Bedford officers were knocking on doors hoping to find leads in the case.

    Missing Bedford teen ID'd as body found in landfill

    UPDATED: JUN 22 2017 04:34PM CDT

    ARLINGTON, Texas - Authorities have confirmed the body found in an Arlington landfill Wednesday afternoon is that of a missing Bedford teen.

    The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Thursday afternoon 14-year-old Kaytlynn Cargill’s body was found in the Republic Service Arlington Landfill. A landfill employee discovered her body.

    Bedford detectives had been looking for Kaytlynn Cargill since she went missing on Monday. She was last seen near her Bedford home on Oak Creek Lane on Monday around 6:20 p.m when she went out to walk her dog.

    The Bedford Police Department did provide any new details in a press release sent shortly after the body was identified.

    "We are shocked and saddened with this tragic news," they said. "We will pursue every lead, leave no stone unturned, and bring the person or persons responsible for Kaytlynn's death to justice."

    Detectives spent Wednesday going door-to-door and asking residents in the Oak Creek Apartment Complex if they had seen the missing teen.

    Bedford police sent out a missing persons alert Tuesday afternoon. At the time, they said they had no reason to believe she was in danger and were treating the case as a “missing runaway.” They said she did not qualify for an Amber Alert.

    Bedford police are taking the lead in the investigation. A cause of death has not been released.

    A press conference will be held at the Bedford Police Department at 10 a.m. Friday.

    I wish they wouldn't be so quick to label these missing children as "runaways" and go so far as to say they don't believe they are in danger. Geez, what "runaway" takes their dog with them?

    Just getting to this case and am shocked! When she asked people to watch her dog, did they notice where she was headed and if someone was in that direction?

    Mystery surrounds death of 14-year-old Bedford girl

    There are few answers as police and the public question how a Bedford teen ended up dead in an Arlington landfill after she was reported missing Monday night.

    "At this point, no information led us to believe that Kaytlynn had been abducted or kidnapped," he said.

    The chief said throughout the night, officers followed leads given by Kaytlynn's family members that the teen may be with friends. However, he said those leads proved to be dead-ends.

    Gibson also addressed community concerns as to why police didn't activate an Amber Alert.

    "The simple answer is there's specific criteria that law enforcement personnel have to follow in terms of initiating an Amber Alert," he said.

    "There was nothing we could've done differently," Gibson said of the department's work on the missing teen's case. "Our staff worked tirelessly on this case."

    As police continued their search for the teen, authorities received a call from Arlington police Wednesday afternoon reporting that a body was found by an employee in a landfill located about five miles from Cargill's house. The next day, the body was identified as Kaytlynn, but a cause of death has yet to be determined.

    "We will pursue every lead, leave no stone unturned and bring the person or persons responsible for Kaytlynn's death to justice," said Lt. Kirk Roberts

    During their search for the teen, police canvassed the teen's neighborhood and flyers were posted around the town. According to the flyers, a friend said she saw Kaytlynn tie her dog's leash to a fence and asked friends to watch the dog but never returned.

    "I didn’t hear any yells, and it happened right behind my balcony," said neighbor Zach McDaniel. "I heard no yells, no helps, no nothing."

    Authorities have asked anyone with information pertaining to the death of Cargill to call the Bedford Police Department at 817-952-2440 or contact the Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817-469-TIPS.

    Cause of death for Bedford teen could take weeks, months

    The Tarrant County Medical Examiner said Monday it could be weeks or months before the cause of death is known for a Bedford 14-year-old girl.

    Bedford Police are keeping up patrols through the apartment complex where Kaytlynn Cargill disappeared from last Monday.

    Bedford PD went to a nearby apartment over the weekend as part of its investigation, but they made no arrest and didn’t say publicly if they found anything relevant to the case.

    Police said Monday they still have no evidence the teenage girl was kidnapped or abducted.

    "We've not made any arrests or executed any search warrants just following up on tips and leads as we discussed,” said Bedford PD Lt. Kirk Roberts.

    Uhhhhh, I'd say her body ending up in a landfill is pretty good evidence of that.

    Ya don't say! I hope they have more going on behind the scenes, because from this angle, it appears they've gotten absolutely nowhere in the past almost-2 months.

    Bedford teen found in landfill died of ‘homicidal violence’

    The Bedford teenager who was found dead at an Arlington landfill in June died of “homicidal violence,” the Tarrant County medical examiner has ruled.

    No arrests have been made in Kaytlynn’s death, and police have not revealed whether a suspect or person of interest has been identified, according to a news release Thursday.

    The news release acknowledged that the homicide ruling “may raise concerns with the public for their safety,” but that “based on the information we have at this time, there is no threat to the public.”

    Investigators had interviewed her friends, but “the kids she was with have been giving us different stories,” Lt. David Smith said at the time.

    Additional details about Kaytlynn’s cause of death were not available Thursday. Her autopsy report has not been completed, a medical examiner spokesperson said.

    If they feel there's no threat to the public, they probably have someone in their sights....

    I've never heard of a runaway walking their dog. If she was going to run away she would have left the dog at home.
    Makes no sense to me. LE dropped the ball on this one, IMHO.
