After 13 years, police say a missing woman has been found alive.

On October 20, 2010, 14-year-old Jessica Delgadillo was reported missing by her family.

The Amarillo Police Department responded and discovered she had not returned home from school.

After the department established the Cold Case Unit in 2023, investigators began looking into three cases and reached out to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Two representatives from the organization were sent to Amarillo to help with the investigations.

The cases investigators were working on were Dorien Thomas, Brandy Noble and Jessica Delgadillo.

Investigators went through each case, updating information and sending out details on social media.

On November 2, 2023, the Amarillo Police Department Homicide Unit received a call from a woman saying she was Jessica Delgadillo and that she knew she had been reported missing.

DNA swabs were collected from the caller and sent to the University of North Texas for comparison to a known family member.

After months of waiting, DNA was confirmed that the woman was in fact Delgadillo.

She requested that her location and the details of her disappearance not be released.

Her cold case has since been closed.
