Police: Missing girls found at western Minnesota horse farm
HERMAN, Minn.– Three police vehicles arrived at a west central Minnesota horse ranch Wednesday afternoon. Carrying a search warrant, police and U.S. marshals hoped to find evidence that would lead them to two Lakeville sisters who’d been missing since April 2013.
Instead, they found Samantha and Gianna Rucki inside a home on the ranch, “safe and in seemingly good health,” Lakeville police said.
Less than four hours later, the girls left the White Horse Ranch in the back of a squad car, hunched forward and covered in a blanket. Lakeville police said Samantha, 17, and Gianna, 16, would be taken back to Dakota County, where the reunification process with their family can begin.
