Two Bonners Ferry teen girls missing, possibly endangered
February 16, 2018
Kaia Kramer Alisa Hannaman
By Mike Weland

Two young Bonners Ferry teens are missing and may be endangered. Kaia Kramer, 13, was last seen at home by her mother at 1:30 a.m. today. She is believed to be with Alisa Hannaman, thought to be 14 or 15, but it is unknown who the girls may be with. A ping of one of the girl's cell phones came back to a tower in Montana.

Details are scarce; Kaia's mom, Melissa, said she has not noticed her daughter with any new friends, youth or adult. She has no idea where the girls' destination might be. Kaia, is a student at Boundary County Middle School, Alisa at Bonners Ferry High School.

But their disappearance follows a pattern that they might have been "groomed" with promises of jobs, clothes, freedom and excitement, things young girls who feel stuck in a small town might find alluring. But, if the worst may be at play, will turn out to be a grave nightmare.

Anyone who has any information or who sees or suspects they've seen these girls is asked to call the Boundary County Sheriff's Office, (208) 267-3151, extension 0. If it appears the girls are not safe or are being held against their will, call 911 and alert authorities immediately.
