Missing Person at Risk FOUND in Vista


A 15-year-old-girl reported missing in Vista is back safe with her family. A United States Postal Service (USPS) worker delivering mail located Abbey Motzer in the 1000 block of East Bobier Drive just before 12:30 p.m. The USPS worker recognized Abbey from a Sheriff’s Department missing person bulletin. The Vista Fire Department came to evaluate Abbey at the scene. She was dehydrated, but was otherwise in good health. Abbey was then reunited with her family.
