“BOLO!!! I came home to Palmyra from work today (5:30pm, 4-29-2015) to a note from my 17 year old daughter Hannah Hinrichs, that she was “going to find her happiness and it wasn’t here”. On top of that note was her cell phone with the battery, sim card and sd card removed and missing.

She may be close by with a friend in Whitewater, or Sullivan, or she may have left Wisconsin already. She also may be with a 19 year old convicted Felon, Alexander Ruiz (pictured). If they are together, he is violating a court order to have no contact with her. If they are together the best thing that could happen to him is that the cops find him and put him back in the safety of jail. I will defend her life with all means necessary. If you see Hannah, Felon Alex, or her car, please call me or her mom Angie Hinrichs immediately if you have our numbers, call the police if the two of them are together, or simply message one of us on facebook. My phone is on all the time. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please share with as many as you can.”

  1. If she took the sim card from her phone, then she could potentially be using it in another phone and could still be tracked that way. Most carriers have a feature at account level that can be added to help you track her (ie AT&T famliy map)
