Authorities report that 16-year-old niece of former NBA star Reggie Miller has safely returned home.
Earlier in the week, Reggie and his family members reported that his niece, Nikki Miller, was missing from her Yorba Linda home Monday, after discovering that she was not in her bedroom at 7:15 am. Thankfully, she returned home.
Investigators and officers responded to the scene but found no evidence to prove Nikki was taken against her will. Authorities believe she had intentionally run away.
“As with most teenagers, when they get hungry or run out of money, they want to come home,” Lt. Roche said.
I believe Nikki and her family should discuss in private why she decided to run away. This is not something that should be shared via social media and/or with other news outlets. However, I am happy that Reggie posted her photo and information on social media to assist in their search to find her. It helped raise awareness as well as notify thousands of people within seconds, to help in their search, Happy to hear she is home and unharmed.
