Update: New Glarus area teen found
Gabriella "Bella" Kraemer


On Friday, January 11, 2019, at approximately 12:05 a.m., missing juvenile, Gabriella Kraemer, 15 of rural New Glarus, was successfully and safely located, according to a GreenCounty Sheriff press release.



MONROE — A 15-year-old girl was still missing Thursday afternoon after leaving her New Glarus area home three days earlier, according to the Green County Sheriff's Office.

Gabriella (Bella) Kraemer was reported missing late Monday, Jan. 7, said Chief Deputy Tom Moczynski.

She was still listed as a missing juvenile on Thursday afternoon, and deputies were working on the case.

"Right now we're working with some Dane County law enforcement agencies," he said, indicating that deputies are investigating the possibility that the teenager is in Dane County.

Amy Hansen, the girl's mother, posted publicly to Facebook on Wednesday about her daughter's disappearance. The post was shared more than 7,000 times. 

"We believe she left the house voluntarily ... but are not sure she intended to be gone this long as she did not take anything (including her jacket or medication) with her," Hansen wrote. She described her daughter as 5-foot-2, 115 pounds, and with long light brown hair.

She urged anyone with information on the case to contact the sheriff's dispatch center at 608-328-9401.
