“Thanks to Telmate Investigator, it was easy to find the location of the baby and who she was with.”

A 2-month-old infant who went missing for several days was found after investigators went to the Oklahoma County Detention Center where the mother, Megan Rogers, is currently being held. Afraid that her child would end up in the biological father’s custody, Rogers had refused to tell investigators the baby’s whereabouts. With no credible clues on the infant’s location, Child Protective Services reached out to Investigator Brandon Davis of the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office for help.
Davis immediately turned to Telmate, the jail’s phone technology provider, for possible leads. He reviewed Roger’s phone call history from the jail using Telmate Investigator, Telmate’s powerful suite of investigator tools.
Using the automated identity verification tool known as Telmate Verified, Davis traced frequent calls that were being made to the infant’s grandmother. Those conversations later led investigators to Durant, Oklahoma, where a family member was caring for the infant.
“Utilizing Telmate saved an amazing amount of time in regards to not having to conduct interviews with suspects and chase down half-truths of the whereabouts of the missing child,” said Davis. “Thanks to Telmate Investigator, it was easy to find the location of the baby and who she was with.”
The Durant Police Department was able to locate the infant and take her into safe custody. Investigator Davis was grateful to report the baby wasn’t harmed and was also reunited with the family of its biological father.
“Technology has the potential to save lives,” said Telmate Chief Marketing Officer, Jeff Hansen, “but the real heroes are our law enforcement officers like Investigator Davis who dedicate their lives to protecting the innocent.”
