An investigation at the border is underway after a girl claims she was strip-searched.  The family says the 16-year-old was stopped at the San Ysidro border crossing recently and searched without her parents' consent.  

The girl and her two sisters were going through the pedestrian crossing after a family trip to Tijuana when a police dog tipped border agents in their direction.  The girl says a female border agent then put her through a cavity search.  The Border Patrol says it take claims of misconduct seriously and will get to the bottom of the case.
