9-year-old girl found near Reno, mother arrested


The Sparks Police Department was assisting the Haskell Police Department in Texas in locating a missing child. She has now been found.

9-year-old Urijah Livingston was in the company of her non-custodial biological mother, Desiree Ward.

Urijah was visiting her mother in Texas when she did not return to her custodial parent on July 22.

Haskell Police Chief Ken Barnett contacted the Sparks Police Department with information Urijah may be with her mother living at a homeless camp along the river in Sparks.

Further investigation revealed the two may have been staying at an unidentified camp in Reno near the downtown area.

Anyone who may have information is asked to call the Sparks Police Department at (775) 353-2231 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900.
