We have made contact with Alaina Malacara and are working on getting her back where she is supposed to be. She is no longer considered missing, but she is still considered a runaway.
At this time we believe that Alaina may be in the Nampa or Caldwell areas. Anyone in those areas who has seen Alaina or who is aware of her current whereabouts is asked to contact the Idaho Falls Police Department at 208-529-1200 or their local law enforcement agency. As a reminder, it is a crime to knowingly provide shelter to a runaway child without notifying law enforcement of the child’s whereabouts. (Idaho Statute 18-1510). We appreciate that there may be kindhearted people offering this child assistance, but doing so without contacting the proper authorities is not really helping her or contributing to her safety long term.
