How a Nintendo Switch helped locate a missing girl 2,000 miles from home

The FBI used information transmitted from a Nintendo Switch to help find a missing 15-year-old in Arizona last summer, according to court records.

Now retired Arizona DPS director, Frank Milstead, who was involved in the case, highlighted how unique this search operation was.

He said: "It's probably nothing that anybody even had thought of at this point.

"The fact that somebody else down the road - another child - was bright enough to go, 'Hey, look, my friend is online, and she's been missing, and I need to tell somebody.'"

He continued: "Everything's connected to Wi-Fi to LTE. A cell phone, an iPad, a watch, whatever it is - you can use those things to locate people.

"The bad guys need to know that the police are watching and that you're leaving a digital footprint everywhere you go. We will find you."
