LINCOLN–(KFOR Aug. 5)–UPDATE: KFOR News media partner 10/11 Now reports Lincoln Police provided more information Monday about an Amber Alert that was issued on Friday night and the arrest of a suspect that reportedly took a Lincoln teen to Colorado.
Police said Nathan Kempter, 32, from Colorado, was arrested for child enticement after police finally located Camille Iacono, 14, in Highlands Ranch, Colorado early Saturday morning. Iacono was reunited with her family later that day.
Iacono was reported missing in Lincoln around 5 p.m. on Friday when officers responded to the 2500 Block of S 74th Street. Police said Iacono had previously been corresponding with individuals who were out of state and she was likely the victim of a child enticement scenario. LPD said they talked to her mother and a friend of hers, as well as looked into her computer and phone. That is where police discovered communication with Kempter. Iacono was discovered in Colorado hours later, and an LPD officer flew to Colorado to investigate Kempter’s home. Kempter will be extradited back to Nebraska.
Police are still unsure how long Iacono and Kempter had been talking, and they are not releasing whether any sort of assault took place.
In the hours after Iacono went missing, both an Endangered Missing Advisory and an Amber Alert were issued. Both were canceled after Iacono was found safe.
Initial reports stated it was possible the suspect was driving an SUV with Texas license plates, but investigators have since learned that was not the case. Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said they are going to continue to improve the Amber Alert process and the spread of information.
