Update: Police announced the 11-year-old girl was found
Original Story: Police in Texas said Monday they have no clue yet how a young girl disappeared overnight from her Bee County home.
According to the Bee County Sheriff’s Office, 11-year-old was last seen in the Windridge Subdivision off of FM 351 in Bee County, at around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning. On Monday afternoon, several agencies, including, in part, the U.S. Coast Guard, K-9 units, and EMS were conducting searches.
“We’ve had two different scent-specific canine searches that haven’t come up with anything,” Bee County Sheriff Alden Southmayd said. “We’ve had Coast Guard helicopters in the air, DPS drones in the air, and like I said it’s been a very extensive ground search and that’s still going on, but right now we don’t have any clues whatsoever.”
Southmayd said that the child’s family heard a door open and shut at around 1:30 a.m. and noticed her missing shortly after. ABC 3 reports that officials confirmed Monday that she is still missing, despite online rumors stating that she had been found.
She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black long sleeve undershirt. She could have possibly also been wearing a yellow Polo-type shirt and a grey hoodie.
Anyone with information about the child’s whereabouts should contact the Bee County Sheriff’s Office at 361-361-3221.
