The Kansas Bureau of Investigation issued an AMBER Alert the afternoon of August 11, for an abducted six-year-old from Chanute, Kan. who was last seen in Fall River, Kan.
It was announced just before 5 p.m., law enforcement located Nina Ruth Senkbeil, identified safe at a residence, and arrested the suspect, Jacob Senkbeil.
Nina Ruth Senkbeil, six, was taken by her father, Jacob Senkbeil, on Wednesday, Aug. 11 at around 10:30 a.m. from Santa Fe Park in Chanute while at a supervised visitation.
At 12:15 p.m., Jacob Senkbeil and Nina Senkbeil were seen at 17515 Oak Wood Lane in Fall River, Kansas, where the father made comments to a witness that makes police believe the child is in imminent danger.
Nina is a biracial female, 4 ft. tall, 75 lbs., with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a white Tweety Bird t-shirt with pink designs, blue and white Nike shorts, and pink and black Nike shoes. Her hair was in a ponytail.
The suspect, Jacob Senkbeil, is a 32-year-old white male described as 5 ft. 9 in. tall, 135 lbs. with blue eyes, and brown hair that is shaved on the top and long on the sides. He was last wearing a green t-shirt, blue jeans, and an orange and blue baseball cap.
The KBI issued an update on the case on their Facebook page a little later, stating the Jeep Cherokee was found unoccupied in Fall River, and both the child and suspect remain missing. That was until she was located at a residence with the suspect.
“They were able to accomplish this with information provided by the residents of Fall River,” said the KBI on their Facebook Page. “The AMBER Alert has been canceled. Thank you to everyone who shared the information and remained vigilant during this alert.”
