GREECE- The 16 year old whose disappearance on Monday sparked an AMBER Alert and frantic search of western New York was found unharmed and charged with grand larceny for the theft of a .38 caliber handgun.
Cassidy Geffert, who was arrested Monday afternoon after she was found alone in her family’s missing vehicle at the Econo Lodge in Brockport, was released without bail into her mother’s care on three major conditions.
First, Geffert is to wear a home tracking device at all times. Second, her mother is to accompany her from 6am to 8pm every day. Third, all weapons are to be removed from the home.
The teen is still set to appear at her school for a final exam on Tuesday. Greece police say that since this is a missing person case and the missing person has been found, they are not searching for any others connected to her disappearance.
Geffert, who allegedly left a blood-flecked note to her parents saying that she was in danger, was found within four hours of the AMBER Alert being activated. Police say that people who had received the Alert reported the black Sedan with the indicated license plate number, which was parked in plain view in the Econo Lodge parking lot.
Geffert allegedly had several items in the car including an iPod, cell phone charger, a book, and a bikini top, some of which were newly purchased from Walmart. Also in the vehicle were printed Mapquest directions from Rochester to Myrtle Beach, SC.
