Investigators who brought kidnapped girl safely home are honored

It was an outcome everyone hoped for, but nobody expected. A little girl missing following a fatal 2016 fire in Bemidji was found — alive.

SFMD Investigator Kevin Mahle worked the fire scene along with Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agents and Bemidji Police Department investigators. This story is a powerful and emotional look at how cases like this affect law enforcement and fire officials, and the importance of teamwork in saving lives.
