Lead may help solve girl's disappearance

Homicide detectives are following up on an online lead that may help solve the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl five years ago.
Detectives say they received a tip last month that someone posted in the online community 4chan about the rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl named Yamileth.

Investigators checked their records and found a Yamileth Rogel who went missing in Bakersfield after running away from home in 2008.

At the time of her disapperance detectives say she may have been in the company of a man named Tito, seen in this picture.

The girl's family says they haven't heard from or seen her since.  The anonymous poster said he had raped the girl and indicated GPS coordinates where her body was buried 5 years ago.

Detectives searched the area but came up empty-handed.  Now they're combing through online records to see if they can track down who made the post.
