Daughter of Sheriff's Spokesman Found, Amber Alert Canceled

Sixteen-year-old Briana Troyer, the daughter of Pierce County Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer, has been found in a north Tacoma home, thanks to a public tip.

An Amber Alert for a 16-year-old mentally challenged Tacoma girl was called off Wednesday morning after she was found in a Tacoma home, thanks to a public tip.

Briana Troyer, the daughter of Pierce County Sheriff's spokeman Ed Troyer, was at Tower Lanes Bowling in Tacoma on Wednesday evening during a school-sanctioned function when she walked off with a 21-year-old registered level-one sex offender, Terrance Powell.

Troyer was at the event with the Wilson High School bowling team. A family spokesman for the family told media they do not know Powell at all.

A public tip led police to find Troyer in a north Tacoma home Wednesday morning.

Her father issued the following statement on his Facebook page Wednesday morning after she was found alive and well:

That is correct they found her thanks to a tip from the public. I don't have the details TPD will be releasing that information. it was a long 14 hours..thanks for all your support and prayers. She is with Detectives now..
