15 Year Old Samantha Roberts Returned Home & 20 Year Old Lodi Man Arrested

Valley Springs, CA...Missing 15 year old Located in Woodbridge. Updated 5/31/18 4:47pm. Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office detectives have been conducting an extensive investigation into the reported missing 15 year old Samantha Roberts of Valley Springs. Numerous possible sightings of Samantha were received over the last few days ranging from locations in Calaveras, Sacramento and San Joaquin County. Through the investigation and interviews, detectives learned that the juvenile had possibly entered into a dating relationship with an adult male. Detectives contacted 20 year old Kevin Kasperson at his place of work in Lodi and arrested him for child endangerment and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.




Samantha was located around 3:30pm today by Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office detectives at Kasperson’s residence in Woodbridge, CA. Child protective services was notified to assist with the investigation and possible reunification of Samantha with her family. At this time detectives have confirmed that Samantha willingly left her residence, was aware of the social media activity reporting her as missing, and she was hiding at Kasperson’s house. Detectives are still conducting follow-up and determining if any other charges will be filed. No further information is available at this time. Kevin Kasperson was transported to the Calaveras County Jail for booking.

At the time of the initial report, Roberts was listed as a voluntary or at-will missing person and considered a possible runaway juvenile. Family and friends have shared her photograph and request to locate via social media. Since then, the Sheriff’s Office has received several reports that Samantha may have been seen accompanied by an adult Caucasian male along the Highway 4 corridor from Murphys to east of Arnold. Deputies are following up on possible sightings, including collecting video surveillance and checking known locations in the area where young adults typically frequent. At this time, the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in locating the missing 15 year old female, Samantha Roberts (pictures attached). She is described as a white female with red hair and blue eyes, height 4’11”, weight 165lbs.
