Police search fields and lakes for evidence in teen's kidnapping

By Tiffany Pelt - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Sunday afternoon dozens of law enforcement launched a large scale search for clues leading to the disappearance of Lubbock teen Elizabeth Ennen who went missing more than two weeks ago.

The Carriage House Motel was the last place Elizabeth was known to be. Less than a mile away from the motel a dive team slowly circled a lake for hours searching for evidence. A helicopter, along with several police officers by foot and on horse also searched nearby fields, but authorities have not released any information on whether they found anything.

Friday night police arrested 45-year-old Humberto Salinas Jr. and charged him with the aggravated kidnapping of Elizabeth. Family members say Elizabeth had been babysitting for Salinas on January 4th at the motel, and that Salinas says he dropped her off around 1:30 the next morning.

Elizabeth's cousin then says Salinas came back around 2 a.m. saying Elizabeth left her purse in his car. But when taking the purse inside, Elizabeth was nowhere to be found.

Police say Elizabeth is in danger and that she went missing without medication she needs daily. Elizabeth is described as a White female, 5'3", 135 pounds with sandy brown hair, and brown eyes.  According to National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, she might go by the nickname Beth or Lizzie. 

If you can help find Elizabeth please call Crimeline at 806-741-1000, or 9-1-1
