The victim is described as a “possible” black female who appeared to be around 8 to 10 years old, according to the witnesses. Authorities said, however, since they aren’t sure of the victim’s age, it’s unclear if she’s a younger child, teen, or even an adult who is small in stature. She has long wavy hair and a medium complexion. She was wearing a green shirt.

During a Thursday press release, Houston authorities said that there were two witnesses to the incident. One of the witnesses followed the suspect’s car until he lost track. The witness told police he saw the girl climb from the passenger seat into the back seat, open a window, and attempt to escape.

“The vehicle is said to be a 2006-2013 black Chevrolet Impala with tinted windows, paper plates & a dark tint over the plates,” Houston police said in a tweet.

According to KHOU, there are two schools in the area where the incident happened. So far, no children matching the victim’s description have been reported missing, and all children at nearby schools have been accounted for.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the HPD Homicide at 713-308-3600.
