Salinas Police Report Online Hoax

August 5, 2014 12:41 pm

Salinas Police say they don’t know what was behind an odd online report that surfaced today from an anonymous poster claiming to know the whereabouts of young Salinas girl who was reported missing on April 23, 2014.  The post claimed to know the whereabouts of Julissa Romero and claimed her body was buried  as a specific location.  The post on the anonymous chat site went as far as giving the exact coordinates for where the body could be found.

Salinas Police made contact with the family of Julissa Romero and determined the 12-year-old girl is alive and accounted for.  They have determined the incident was a complete hoax.  This is a screen shot of that original post.
