A Texas teen - an American citizen - goes missing for more than a year.  When she's found, the girl is deported to Colombia, even though she doesn't even speak Spanish.

FOX News Radio's Jane Metzler explains:

In November of 2010, at the age of 14, Jakadrien Turner ran away from home in Dallas after her parents divorced and her grandfather died.  Winding up in Houston, where was arrested for theft, giving cops a fake name.  She also told them she was from Colombia and in this country illegally.

Even though she was on a list of missing children and spoke no Spanish, authorities bought her story, including a federal immigration judge who ordered her deported.  Colombian officials, keeping the girl, who reportedly was cleaning houses there, in detention as U.S. immigration officials investigate and the girl's family tries to bring her home.
