The girl, identified publicly as Chloe Campbell, had been missing since the afternoon of a football game between Boulder High and Fairview. A multiagency effort pinpointed her locationat a residence in Thornton. 

Boulder police say they believe Campbell ran away from home but will continue to investigate the situation and gather more details.

Police Chief Maris Herold said in Press Release, “There is an ongoing investigation about where she. And what occurred while she was separated from her family. Some details are being withheld at this time to allow for a thorough investigation. We will not be releasing any additional details at this time out of respect for the teen’s privacy and to protect the integrity of the potential investigation.”

Colorado Attorney General Is Seeking Public Feedback

The Colorado Attorney General’s Office is seeking public feedback on proposed data privacy rules and how companies use personal information.

The proposed Colorado Privacy Act rules have been available since yesterday in the Colorado Register and on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website.

The Colorado Privacy Act is using a four-pronged approach to protect Coloradans’ privacy. First, granting Coloradans rights to access the data that companies have collected about them. Second, to determine whether and how companies can continue to collect, store, use, or sell their personal information. Third, it requires companies to be transparent about how they use personal data and to take precautions to reduce the risk that their data collection and use might pose to consumers. Finally, the law grants the attorney general the authority not only to hold organizations accountable for failing to comply with their obligations, but also to draft rules that would clarify the act’s requirements and provide guidance for compliance.

The privacy act will give Coloradans protections similar to those available to residents of other states like California and Virginia. 

Members of the public can provide comments in a series of stakeholder meetings scheduled for November. The privacy act’s rules are due to come into effect July 1st.
