Missing NMSU Students Located in Idaho


Las Cruces Police say that the two missing NMSU Students have been located and are in good condition in Idaho.

McKinnah Sinclair, 18, and her roommate, Charlie Daniels, 19, were reported missing over the weekend after they came to a concert in El Paso on Friday night and were never heard from again.

Monday, LCPD said that the the girls were seen on surveillance footage at a Beverly Hills ATM and appeared to be in good condition.

On Thursday morning, a police officer in Nampa, Idaho – just west of Boise – pulled over a red Ford Focus that was driving 30 MPH under the speed limit. When they officer was investigating the stop, they learned that Daniels was the driver and Sinclair was the passenger in the car.

According to the Nampa Police Department, the Focus had a fake license plate on it. Police learned that the teens allegedly switched plates before leaving on their multi-state trip.

The Focus is registered to Daniels’ parents and she is facing charges in Idaho for driving a vehicle with fictitious plates.

The girls families have made arrangements to have the pair returned to New Mexico. It is still unclear why the girls left without telling their families or what their final destination may have been.

Las Cruces Police would like to thank various law enforcement agencies in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, California, Nevada and Idaho.
