Kaytlynn Cargill, 14, was last seen around 6:30 pm on Monday, June 19, 2017 while walking her dog around the Oak Creek Apartments in Bedford, Texas.
Her mother found the dog tied to a fence at a nearby dog park but Kaytlynn was no where to be seen. A friend of Kaytlynn told her mother that Kaytlynn said to watch the dog for a minute but she never returned.
Detectives spent last Wednesday going door-to-door and asking residents in the Oak Creek Apartment Complex if they had seen Kaytlynn.
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.
On Thursday, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the body found in the Republic Service Arlington Landfill on Wednesday afternoon, by a landfill employee, is that of a Kaytlynn.
Police say they have no suspects and they are awaiting results of a toxicology report by the medical examiner to determine her cause of death.
Her family says that she was a “natural born athlete” and a lover of the outdoors.
Kaytlynn will be laid to rest on Tuesday. Our thoughts are with her family and friends as they mourn her passing. Rest well Kaytlynn...
