Police in Texas are asking for help to find a missing 14-year-old girl they believe could be in serious danger, NBC DFW reported.
Angelina Church was last seen Monday night near midnight on surveillance video at a Walmart in Red Oak. She hasn’t been in contact with her family since texting her mother from school that morning.
“Everything seemed extremely normal, but between second and third period is when she left the school,” said Debbie Church.
Church said the family believes she was picked up from school by a boy she met on Instagram. Waxahachie Police said they questioned the boy, who said he’d dropped her off at a Whattaburger in Red Oak, across the street from the Walmart where she was seen on video. She was alone at the Walmart.
“It’s the most unexplainable feeling whenever you have no idea where they are,” Debbie Church said. “You can’t protect them. You can’t do anything to take care of them. You’re just so helpless, completely. You just don’t know how to feel. You just want to be able to know, are you okay?”
Police said Angelina left Waxahachie High School, where she is a freshman, between 11:30 am and noon, wearing a black and white hoodie with red across the front, black jeans with rips on the front, black Converse shoes, black framed glassesand a black backpack.
They ask anyone with information to contact the Waxahachie Police Department at 469-309-4400.
