MISSING IN KANSAS: Patience Hanover found safe

Posted: Updated:

The family of Patience Hanover says the missing teen has been found safe.


A Wichita family is hoping people can be on the lookout for Patience Hanover.

The 17-year-old was staying at a friend’s house during spring break last week. She was in the area of 13th and Hydraulic. Her mom tells KAKE’s Annette Lawless that she doesn’t know if her daughter ran away because she didn’t take any of her clothes. Her mom said it’s unusual for Patience to not call her.

Patience's boyfriend, Trayvon Clemmer, was reportedly missing since January. Police confirm he has been found safe. Families for both teens say Patience was not with him. She remains listed as a runaway.
